Animators Seize the Seat

Part of the Industry (non-public) Strand

  • 150 mins


Thursday 29 June

10:30 - 14:00 ARTHUR'S SEAT
Meeting point: Holyrood Palace Car Park


Access: Anyone can attend, however EIFF would like to apologise that due to the nature of this activity it would not be suitable for attendees with restricted movement, although Summerhall has provision for disabled access.

Now an EIFF tradition, the Animators Walk to the top of Edinburgh’s Arthur’s Seat offers an informal and energetic opportunity to get to know animators participating in the Festival. The walk, pending suitable weather on the day, should take not more than two hours and is suitable for all fitness levels. This year’s walk will take place between the two McLaren Award for Best British Animation Screenings on the 28 and 29 June.

The walk ends at the Royal Dick Bar in Summerhall around 12:30/13:00 where you can also join the group (lunch not included). Many local animators have studios in Summerhall.

If you would like to participate, please congregate from 10:30 for an 11:00 start at Holyrood Palace Car Park (situated within Holyrood Park at the side of Holyrood Palace on Queen’s Drive). Our animation programmer Iain Gardner will be there (in EIFF livery) to meet you and guide the walk over the Seat.
