Centre for the Moving Image (CMI) Statement

Statement on behalf of the Board, CEO and staff of the Centre for the Moving Image (CMI) re: the Edinburgh International Film Festival

In advance of a full review of this year’s event, the CMI team wishes to confirm the following:

  • The Edinburgh International Film Festival is a major cinephile festival; the programme of EIFF 2012 will reflect the Festival's 65year-long commitment to celebrating the art of film making. 
  • The Michael Powell Award is a major asset of the EIFF and, after our unique 65th birthday celebrations, we will continue our tradition of recognising and rewarding excellence with this award. 
  • Feedback on EIFF 2011 will be taken into consideration in our planning for future Festivals. 
  • Industry views regarding the dates of the festival are being taken into consideration and a decision will be made in due course.

No further comment will be made on these points at this stage.
