EIFF Works in Progress

In 2016 Edinburgh International Film Festival held the first EIFF Works in Progress, a showcase event for UK films, supporting them in their ambitions to reach completion, festival selection or theatrical release.

EIFF is committed to developing and enhancing the existing film Industry along with supporting and promoting exciting new films and talent.

Each year the Festival welcomes over 1200 industry delegates and filmmakers who partake of our film programme, industry events and networking opportunities. Our talent programmes for emerging writers, directors and producers have been running since 2010 and alumni filmmakers have gone on to forge successful careers in the Industry.

Building on this success, we introduced EIFF Works in Progress, a one-day event where invited international sales agents, distributors, producers and festival programmers got an ahead-of-the-game look at upcoming British feature films. EWiP offered a selection of quality narrative feature projects which are in production or post-production and are seeking an international sales agent.
