The DigiTales legacy reached far and wide since its humble beginnings in a workshop at the BBC in Cardiff in January 2006. The early workshops produced over eighty films, hosted countless screenings in communities and provided material for mainstream television channels from BBC to YLE, the Finnish national public broadcaster. DigiTales stories have also been exhibited in a variety of public spaces from the major international policy conference Creative Clusters in Newcastle to DigiTales at de Balie, a major cultural institution in Amsterdam.

A series of films were also screened on the Berlin underground trains in June 2006 during the football World Cup, as part of a scriptwriting competition based around the theme of Integration, organised by BGZ (Berlin International Cooperation Agency). In June 2007, some 150 people from across Europe gathered at FACT in Liverpool for a conference and exhibition to mark the success of the pilot project and lay the roots for the DigiTales company.
