Behind the Curtain: 70 Years of EIFF

Part of the Unlocking the Archives Strand


Tickets available from 10:00 on the day of the event - Thu 29 June, 17:50, Filmhouse.

Join us for a special event with former EIFF Artistic Director Jim Hickey (1981-1988), and Rachel Hosker, Archives Manager at the Centre for Research Collections at the University of Edinburgh; a conversation that will celebrate memories of the Festival and the people and events that have been part of it. We will reveal fascinating tales and insights into the rich and diverse heritage of the Festival, using archive footage, rarely seen photographs and precious artefacts from EIFF archival collections. An informal, interactive journey into the past, unearthing hidden gems and, hopefully, prompting some of your own memories of the Festival.
