Hooray for Holyrood

Part of the Unlocking the Archives Strand


Scottish Television’s film on the 40th Edinburgh International Film Festival in 1986, starring Robbie Coltrane (a former EIFF chauffeur) and featuring interviews with Bill Forsyth, Neil Jordan, Samuel Fuller, Barry Norman, Denis Forman, and Stephen Woolley, among many others. Former EIFF Directors reflect on the heritage of the Festival, its many incarnations and what it means to them personally. Fascinating reminiscences, interviews, stories and archive footage including shots of Edinburgh and Filmhouse make this an exciting and illuminating journey into the rich history of EIFF.
