Drifters: In Celebration of the Edinburgh Film Guild
Documentary / No
A special screening in honour of EIFF’s founder organisation, celebrating their 80th anniversary.
This festival is very proud to be the offspring of the oldest still-running film society in the world – and to offer this screening of John Grierson’s classic 1929 documentary as a token of our appreciation. One of the Guild’s early supporters and champions, Grierson also backed the instigation of a festival as part of its activity. This portrait of North Sea herring fishermen remains one of the key works of the documentary movement.
