Patron Sir Sean Connery will be among those in attendance at the EIFF Awards Ceremony on Sunday, and a limited number of tickets are still available.

As the Fest begins to draw to a close it’s almost time to announce the winners of this year’s various EIFF awards.

A star-studded ceremony will take place on Sunday at the Filmhouse with EIFF patron Sir Sean Connery among those presenting the accolades.

A limited number of tickets are still available for the event.

Twelve different awards are up for grabs with categories including Skillset New Director, UK Film Council Best British Short Film, PPG Award for Best Performance and the prestigious Michael Powell Award for Best New British Feature Film.

Other awards include the European Film Academy Short Film, The McLaren Award for New British Animation in Partnership with BBC Film Network, Scottish Short Documentary Award supported by Bailie Gifford and Best Documentary Feature Award. 

The Rotten Tomatoes Critical Consensus Award will also see some of the UK’s finest film critics award their pick of the Fest.

As always there’s the opportunity for you - the cinema-goer - to become a film critic courtesy of the Standard Life Audience Award.

At present, The Secret Of Kells is shaping up to be a likely winner with Crying With Laughter a close second.

Moon, The September Issue and The First Day of The Rest of Your Life also make up the top five in the current standings.

Remember to cast your vote at all British Gala and Gala screenings.
