EIFF highlights at Filmhouse

Don't miss an outstanding collection of EIFF features screening at Filmhouse this month

EIFF 2012 is well behind us now and the fantastic programme has been celebrated as an EIFF classic. This month, Filmhouse is showing a host of features from EIFF 2012 (and EIFF 2010) as part of its bumper month of films.

The Filmhouse programme is packed with features, seasons, festivals, retrospectives and events in August and it includes some must-see features from this year's EIFF. This is your chance to see these features if you missed them at the Festival or even see them again! Click here to download and view the official brochure.  

Three sell-out EIFF features not to be missed this month are the innovative 7 Days in Havana (Fri 3 Aug - Tue 7 Aug), James Marsh's Shadow Dancer (Fri 24 Aug - Thu 13 Sep) and of course the Disney-Pixar wonder that is Brave (Fri 3 Aug - 23 Aug) which will be screening in 2D and 3D at Filmhouse (the first digital 3D screening at Filmhouse). 

The August programme also includes EIFF favourites God Bless America (Fri 3 - Sun 5 Aug), Dr Seuss' The Lorax (Sat 1 & Sun 2 Aug) and the feature-length documentary Restrepo (from EIFF 2010). If that's not enough there's also the premiering of the Second Light Storytelling Lab Shorts (Sat 11 Aug) where the productions from the Festival's young persons initiative will be screened (tickets are free).
As well as these EIFF classics, Filmhouse’s jam-packed August programme has a host of genuinely not-to-be-missed features; highlights include Ann Hui’s A Simple Life, the spectacular Samsara, the Marilyn Monroe season Our Week With Marilyn, the major Hitchcock retrospective The Genius of Hitchcock and our festival collaborations with the Edinburgh International Book Festival, the Edinburgh International TV Festival, the Beyond Borders festival and the Festival of Spirituality and Peace.
