Grabbers
@GoldenPun: Really enjoyed GRABBERS. Doesn't reinvent the horror wheel, but a very fun & funny mix of Father Ted & Benchley's The Beast. @edfilmfest

The Life & Times of Paul the Psychic Octopus
@mondoghosto: Paul the Psychic Octopus? I have grown more and more fond of his charm as the day wears on... #EdFilmFest

The King of Pigs
@EndTitlesBlog: Just saw 'King of Pigs', Korean animation. Interesting style and brutal story. Very good. #edfilmfest #kingofpigs

The Ambassador
@G_RantonTweet: The Ambassador, what a superb picture. #edfilmfest

Tondo, Beloved
@MarkCousinsFilm: @edfilmfest this morning, saw philippino doc Tondo; classically beautiful, like the best of Maysles...and, again, so moving.

Never Too Late
@ShadowsRich: Never Too Late: intimate Israeli drama suggests that moping around the countryside is just the tonic for overcoming years of guilt.

Rent-a-Cat
@NathanealSmith: #edfilmfest? Rent-A-Cat: if I see a more adorable film this festival, I'll eat my press pass. Absolutely bonkers, but ridiculously sweet.

The Imposter
@Film4: A massively heartfelt Follow Friday to the talented folk behind @theimposterfilm at @edfilmfest. Released in UK cinemas in August. #FF

Gattu
@FilmFan1971: First film of the day: Gattu. Charming Indian drama about a kite-flying street urchin. #edfilmfest

... and from our partners at The List:

@GailTolley: The @edfilmfest coverage continues @thelistmagazine: Interview with Maja Borg on her experimental doc Future My Love.

"At once thought-provoking and emotionally-provocative." -- Miles Fielder, The List
