Edinburgh International Film Festival is delighted to present a special screening of Reichenbach Falls, followed by a Q&A with Ian Rankin.

Commissioned as part of BBC Four's birthday celebrations in 2007, Reichenbach Falls will appear on the big screen on Saturday 1 July, 1.15pm at Filmhouse, the home of Edinburgh International Film Festival. 

This special event is presented by EIFF in partnership with RebusFest - a brand new festival of literature, music, art and film in Ian Rankin and Rebus' hometown of Edinburgh and also launches Filmhouse's new Guest Programmer initiative. Further Filmhouse Guest Programmers will be announced in the coming months.

In Reichenbach Falls, wry and obsessive DI Buchan is a cop on the edge; suave and self-assured Jack Harvey is a best- selling crime novelist with the world at his feet. As Buchan probes a 100-year-old cold case, his investigation takes him on a journey into the Scottish capital's literary past that will cause him to question his very existence and set him on a collision course with his onetime friend...

Written by James Mavor, and based on an original idea by Ian Rankin, Reichenbach Falls is a captivating crime drama that reflects Rankin's enduring fascination with his home town of Edinburgh.

EIFF and Filmhouse are delighted to welcome Mr. Rankin to the cinema for a post-screening discussion.

Duration: 2 hours

Tickets £8 / £6 concessions, on sale now.
