Best of the Fest 2016
A chance to see a selection of some of the most popular films from the festival, for just £7 per ticket!
Best of the Fest is your last chance to see the cream of the crop from this year's Festival. We're putting on a series of screenings of the best films from EIFF 2016, all of which have been hugely popular during our 70th edition. All screenings are £7.
On Sunday 26 June, you can see Meg Ryan's directorial debut, the touching Ithaca; The Carer, with Brian Cox at his magnificent best; Timothy Spall and Juno Temple as two lost souls wandering through Blackpool in Away; Icíar Bollaín's gently moving family drama The Olive Tree; Maggie's Plan, Rebecca Miller's utterly charming New York rom-com starring Ethan Hawke, Greta Gerwig and Julianne Moore; and The First Monday in May, an enthralling documentary which goes behind the scenes of the Met Gala.
In the evening we have Taika Waititi's delightful odd-couple story Hunt for the Wilderpeople; Philip John's stylish and sexy Scottish coming of age story Moon Dogs; a rare screening of 1973 cult anime classic Belladonna of Sadness; fun and frantic rom-com Mr. Right, starring Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick; and Russell Mulcahy's newly restored cult classic Highlander.
