Join us for a special event with former EIFF director Lynda Myles (1973–1980) and Rachel Hosker, archives manager at University of Edinburgh. Lynda, the first female director of a film festival in the world, will discuss her former role and the development of the first festival focused on women in cinema. Together, they will celebrate the memories, people and events of EIFF’s history. Using fascinating archival footage, this will be an illuminating look at EIFF’s pioneering sensibilities and fascinating heritage, as well as its influence on the wider film industry.
