The Illusionist announced as Opening Gala for 2010 Festival
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'.
