Are you prepared?

'Remember, remember the first of June' may not be poetic but it's certainly prophetic, for this is the date when the programme is revealed.

The full EIFF programme launch is always a thrill and it's at this point that the smarter festival-goers make plans or log-in to the Web Members area and get going on the cracking My Movies organiser.

It's a little bit later than usual this year - traditionally the programme is announced a few weeks in advance of the fest which always felt like a near eternity to wait for all the cinematic goodies.

With the new 1 June launch date, it'll be barely two weeks from ticket purchase time (midday on 3 June - another date for your diary) till the fest gets going on 16 June.

That means less time for you to re-read the programme for the umpteenth time, second-guessing your choices, so best get the holidays booked, or sickness blag prepped, now.

Don't forget that there may be programme announcements in advance of this so be sure to sign-up for Web Membership to find out first.
