Guest Services

The Festival's Guest Services team is responsible for all arrangements to support the many visiting filmmaker, industry and press guests. The team works hard to ensure that visitors are well looked after throughout their trip, and are able to maximise all networking opportunities whilst in Edinburgh. Managed by the Head of Guest Services, the team includes Guest Service Coordinators, Jury Coordinators, a Hospitality Coordinator, the Guest Drivers' Coordinator and Deputy and the Guest Drivers.

Working to the highest level of film industry standards, duties range from booking travel and accommodation, planning hospitality and networking arrangements, and liaising closely with talent agents, film distributors and other film industry professionals. The team also works closely with, and informs other key areas of the Festival, including Programming, Sponsorship and Press, making sure that information on each guest is passed to all the relevant teams.

In 2013 the team managed arrangements for 226 Industry guests and a further 528 Filmmaker guests.
