Capital Crime to Launch Digital Festival

London’s new crime and thriller festival, Capital Crime, is pleased to announce the launch of a new year-round digital crime and thriller festival, Capital Crime Digital.

Capital Crime co-founder, Adam Hamdy says, ‘When we started programming Capital Crime, we realised the limitations of a physical festival, so we came up with Capital Crime Digital as a way to showcase even more talent.’

Capital Crime Digital is an online festival that will feature interviews, profiles and discussions with authors and other crime and thriller creatives. Hosted at, the festival will be a permanent way for fans to connect with their favourite writers and creators.

Capital Crime co-founder, David Headley says, ‘Digital technology allows us to be even more inclusive and enables us to feature an additional 60 creatives over and above those who will be at the physical festival. Capital Crime Digital will offer year- round exposure to crime and thriller fans all over the world. It’s an important part of the Capital Crime strategy to help grow the popularity of the crime and thriller genre.’

Adam Hamdy says, ‘Our production team has years of experience producing broadcast quality content, so participating creatives can be assured they and their work will be presented at the highest possible standard. It’s an exciting addition to the Capital Crime experience. One we hope will help further people’s careers, increasing their engagement with existing fans and exposing them to new ones.’

Authors and creatives will start to receive invitations to participate in Capital Crime Digital over the coming weeks and the digital festival will launch in September 2019, to coincide with Capital Crime, which takes place at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Central London on the 26th to 28th September 2019.

David Headley says, ‘We’re excited to be launching Capital Crime Digital and are eager to start involving the crime and thriller community in this powerful new initiative.’
