Like Starsky to Hutch or Thelma to Louise - EIFF team up with The Skinny to create another fabulous, film-fuelled partnership.
This year's EIFF sees our fruitful relationship with The Skinny continue as a media partner; a joining of forces that endeavours to bring you the very best in news, views and blog-based action right across the festival.
After launching in the autumn of 2005, The Skinny has gone on to become Scotland's largest independent listings and events magazine covering both Scottish and international talent in the fields of music, film, theatre, art and beyond.
Film Editor Gail Tolley has already started scouring this year's line-up for the choicest cuts in underground and cult cinema in her article 'Revenge of the Monster Film Festival'. Gail also caught up with Modern Love Is Automatic director Zach Clark to chat about breaking the rules of conventional film-making.
Giving his own unique spin on the Roger Corman Retrospective, Michael Gillespie reflects on a legacy of cinema created by the 83-year-old King of the B-movie while Ray Philp's film blog promises a critical yet witty eye as always. Gail and Michael will be adding their thoughts on EIFF in their own blogs at www.theskinny.co.uk.
And don't forget to register for The Skinny's year-round e-newsletter, CyberZap. It's an invaluable guide to the top ten things hapenning throughout Scotland, delivered weekly to your inbox. Visit www.theskinny.co.uk/account/register to register now.
