It’s always exciting when one of our treasured titles makes its first foray into the wider world of cinema release, but we’re especially pleased to see Stuart Hazeldine’s Exam unleashed on the world.
Just a reminder that our earlybird submission deadline is this Monday - 14th December. This is your last chance to submit work at our low earlybird rates. Click here to find out more.
Our Artistic Director wins prestigious award at the Women in Film and Television Awards
Yet more EIFF premiered films are celebrated elsewhere...
Want to know what our Programming Team have been up to recently? Sure you do! Find out here...
It's that time of year... Halloween is nearly upon us and some of the horror flicks on general release are terrifying for all the wrong reasons.
Is it over??! Outwardly perhaps, but there is no rest for the wickedly devoted/delirious programming team.
Just like a sports fan who has an illogical fondness for a team and keeps an eye on their progress, I do much the same with EIFF films.
As I'm writing this there are just a few hours left until the last reel turns on a Festival film, and I'm reflecting on another great year.
My last word on the premiere of Romeo & Juliet vs. The Living Dead and
our experiences in Edinburgh.
Can't say much more than that to describe my day.
The stars of EIFF 2009 have come in all shapes and sizes but Roger Corman is certainly the most influential of them all. I was lucky enough to grab an interview with him today.
It's morning. I'm tired, on my way to a volcano and listening to a deep analysis of what constitutes "real" Weetabix vs. Scottish Weetabix.
It was a once in a lifetime experience for the EIFFtv crew yesterday, as we captured Scor-zay-zee and Le Donk in action.
I'm very sad I'll be missing the Corman: In Person event tomorrow. I'm speaking at the same time in the Conversation series.
Jason and I saw Antichrist this afternoon. It's the feel good movie
of the festival, like a Disney film with genital mutilation.
WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Several film festival jurors were ferried off to attend a fete at the stately Edinburgh Castle Sunday night to honor of the Scottish film industry's partnership with the Indian film world.
Yesterday I joined a group of fellow filmmakers at the U.S. Consulate. It was a collection of six very different films represented by six disparate directors, yet all of us with the same struggles.
No festival would be complete without its very own party circuit and EIFF is no different.
Each year at the fest, there's much fun to be had in guessing what 'the next big thing' is going to be, and I reckon a local production could be this year's hot ticket.
