An Insight into the Edinburgh International Film Festival

An Insight into the Edinburgh International Film Festival is a short course offered every year by EIFF and the University of Edinburgh.

This Open Studies course allows participants the chance to analyse and discover the range and depth of the Festival’s film programming, whilst networking with fellow cinephiles. As ever, this year’s course offers an eclectic range of screenings and events. 

Participants will receive a 2014 EIFF catalogue and will attend film premieres at EIFF, beginning with the Opening Night Gala, and take part in tutor-led discussions between Wed 18 and Sun 22 June 2014.

Starting off with the Opening Night, the course will cover five days of programming (18-22 June inclusive). The course is open to all and no previous knowledge is required.

The aim is to give participants a better critical understanding of film styles, genres and directorial approaches and an insight into the Edinburgh International Film Festival. Last year's screenings included Virgin Forest (South Korea), The Last Station (Chile) and Maldone (France).

Fully enrolled students can purchase an EIFF Student Pass with a special 10% discount. The pass gives access to Press and Industry screenings, the Delegate Centre and has many other benefits (see EIFF website for details).
