Certified, the EIFF's programme of films for young adults, is back by popular demand and the 2006 range of films is bigger and better than ever.
Many of the films at this year’s festival are being shown in Britain for the first time, so haven’t been given a certificate yet. To make sure you don’t miss out, we’ve selected 16 great movies that are suitable for the 14-18 age group.
These ARE NOT films for kids. They deal with lots of difficult issues, just a little less graphically. Previous Certified films included the Scottish premieres of Ae Fond Kiss, Hero and Super Size Me, to name but a few.
This year we have included a wide range of films; from gritty Hip-Hop drama Life and Lyrics, to the magnificent coming-of-age tale Madeinusa; from cult American comedy Gretchen, to the stunning Japanese heist romance First Love. Whatever your taste, this year’s Certified selection gives you the chance to see the best and most exciting movies first.
All Certified films are just £4. Even better, you get 3 for 2 on all Certified tickets.
It’s simple, really. Have a look at the movies, see which ones you fancy and follow the booking instructions below.
You must be 14-18 years old to qualify for the Certified price. Certified tickets can only be bought in person at the Filmhouse or Cineworld; they are not available to buy over the phone or online. Proof of age is required at time of booking. The 3 for 2 offer is only available upon presentation of a Young Scot Card or the Certified booklet.
Winners of EIFF 2014’s short film awards and two of its documentary premieres have been nominated for 2015 BAFTAs.
