Best of the Fest is our unmissable EIFF finale.

Read all about what the filmmakers have to say about their films which have their last screening on Sunday. Don't miss out - they are some of the most popuar films of the Festival!

Read all about it:

Shadow Dancer
Oscar®-winning director and EIFF favourite James Marsh tells us about his psychological thriller which opened to sold-out screenings and is one of our Best of the Fest.

Future My Love
Maja Borg's experimental documentary takes a look at the personal and societal implications of the world in which we live and offers some alternatives. Her beguiling exploration includes Super 8 footage and big ideas. Catch it while you can.

Life Just Is
Life Just Is... another Michael Powell Award-nominee and Best of the Fest pick! Hear more about it from director Alex Barrett.

Berberian Sound Studio
Join director Peter Strickland as he discusses critical and audience EIFF favourite Berberian Sound Studio.

British actor Richard Coyle regales us with tales of Pusher - the British adaptation of the film from Nicholas Winding Refn.

... but we couldn't get rid of him that easily! Richard Coyle is also here with hilarious British-Irish film Grabbers, which certainly grabbed audiences and is back for Best of the Fest.

Day of the Flowers
Stars Eva Birthistle and Carlos Acosta told about the colourful and wryly humourous Day of the Flowers. The film received its World Premiere at EIFF 2012 and returns for Best of the Fest.
