EIFF Patron Tilda Swinton and filmmaker Mark Cousins announce their new venture.

We are delighted to be screening The White Balloon, one of the best children’s films ever made, in solidarity with its director Jafar Panahi.

EIFF Patron Tilda Swinton and filmmaker Mark Cousins want you to join them in 8½ Foundation’s latest venture at the Festival, and it will certainly help if you have happy feet!
