The 2012 MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival takes place from 23rd to 25th August, and will include an exclusive screening of the premier episode of the seventh full series of modern Doctor Who for delegates at the event.

The festival will also include a masterclass on the BBC1 series Sherlock, with appearances from Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and producer Sue Vertue.

As part of the weekend, the festival also holds a Channel of the Year award ceremony, and this year the nominations include Richard Senior in the Producer or Director Debut of the Year category for his work on Let's Kill Hitler (which premiered at last year's festival). He'll be up against Grace Reynolds for Educating Essex and Dan Albion for Dynamo: Magician Impossible. Voting is open to festival delegates, and takes place on 24th August.

You can keep up to date with the festival via the official website and blog.
