Get happy feet with Tilda and Mark
If you haven’t heard already, Mark Cousins and Tilda Swinton have some exciting events planned for the launch of their latest venture, the 8 1/2 Foundation.
All of Edinburgh is invited to flashmob Festival Square on Lothian Road on 26 June at 11:00 and perform a four minute dance choreographed by the great Laurel and Hardy in Way Out West, come rain or shine.
This will be a followed by a screening in Filmhouse 1 at 13:15 of The White Balloon, a family-friendly film directed by Jafar Pahani.
The screening will be followed with a talk about 8 1/2 Foundation; introducing the team, announcing some of the films and locations and time will be allowed for discussion.
To ensure you don't miss out on the launch of this unique initiative, buy a ticket for the screening here, and don't forget your dancing shoes!
