Alongside the public programme of films and events, the Festival’s Industry team manages a programme of events, screenings, networking opportunities for hundreds of film industry delegates who attend EIFF from all over the world. Accredited passholders are provided with a number of services including a dedicated Industry venue, Industry screenings, online registration, an online viewing facility and access to information on all Festival attenders and activity. Activity runs throughout the festival and consists of a number of specialist events including Scotland’s Screen Summit, EIFF Works in Progress and Distribution Rewired.

As part of our Industry programme, EIFF also offers a series of talent development initiatives to support both project and career development for emerging filmmakers including the four day EIFF Talent Lab which will take place during the Festival.
