We're delighted to announce that Sylvain Chomet's The Illusionist will be the Opening Gala for this year's Festival.

The Opening Gala will take place on Wednesday 16 June with a spectacular red carpet premiere at Edinburgh's Festival Theatre.

Sylvain Chomet is the Academy Award® nominated writer/director of Belleville Rendezvous and The Illusionist is his much anticipated magical animation based on a script by French film legend Jacques Tati. Fittingly, Variety has described it as a 'love-letter to Edinburgh'.
