Film in the City

Film in the City

June is the month of film in Edinburgh! EIFF has once again teamed up with This Is Edinburgh for Film in the City, a cinematic celebration throughout the capital.

Film in the City kicks off with our dance-along extravaganza in partnership with Dance Base, in the glorious surroundings of the Grassmarket on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 June.

Then join us in St Andrew Square for our annual outdoor screenings, Friday 12 to Sunday 14 June. Get lost in movies with your favourite heroes and heroines as we celebrate some of the greatest big-screen classics.

This Is Edinburgh

Become a cool rider with Grease 2, street-dance like a pro to Step Up and release your inner Dancing Queen with Mamma Mia!.
