Surprise Movie

  • 120 mins

Back after a three-year hiatus, The Surprise Movie is back! It could be literally anything, in any format, any language, any genre. As you may have seen from this year's programme, our taste is varied and unpredictable. The most tightly guarded secret at EIFF - even if you think you know what the Surprise Movie is, you're wrong.

What we guarantee is that it’s something that we're excited about and we think you will be too. EIFF has a great tradition of Suprise Movies, past features include Pulp Fiction, LA Confidential, Spirited Away, My Name Is Joe and The Bourne Identity.

Do not miss it.
