The longest continually running film festival in the world, Edinburgh International Film Festival will soon be preparing for its 69th edition. Over the years, the Festival has continued to bring UK audiences ground-breaking and exciting films from around the world. EIFF seeks to represent the most innovative and adventurous developments in world cinema, to bring worthy filmmakers to local and worldwide attention, and to provide a forum for appreciative and informed discussion of their work.

Want to be in the midst of a vibrant festival in Scotland's beautiful capital? You and your film could be part of EIFF 2015. We will be opening our call for submissions on Monday 3 November and we accept films of all genres: fiction and documentary, animation and experimental, shorts and features.

Full details on how to submit your film will be announced soon. Until then why not follow us on twitter - @edfilmfest / @eiffdelegates for up-to-date information on the Festival.
