Don't Miss! Picks of the Fest

uwantme2killhim? (25 & 26 June)
Screening as part of the Michael Powell Award Competition, this top new British feature has its World Premiere here at EIFF. Featuring rising star Jamie Blackley, it's a tale of adolescent obsession and the darkest corners of the Internet.
The Great Hip Hop Hoax (27, 27 & 28 June)
This latest documentary from Sound It Out director Jeanie Finlay takes on Californian rap duo Silibil ‘n’ Brains as they are poised to take the music world by storm. But who are they, really? National identity and fame are explored in this explosive documentary as part of the New Realities strand.
Everyone's Going to Die (26 & 28 June)
A charming sentiment and a gangster screwball black comedy. Get your hands on a ticket to the International Premiere to this Michael Powell Award competitor in which two melancholy drifters meet by chance at a restaurant and form a relationship that is funny, romantic, and utterly doomed.
The Conjuring (27 & 28 June)
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga star in the Audience Award-nominated The Conjuring. Join them for supernatural terror beyond belief. Re-capturing the mood of some of the great 1970s American horror films, it's a must-watch for horror fans.
Outpost 3: Rise of the Spetsnaz (27 & 29 June)
This local feature brings the third instalment in the popular Nazi zombie saga, Outpost. Hosting its World Premiere as part of the Night Moves strand, it promises frenetic action, gory horror, and a sardonic touch.
Traffic Department (28 June)
The International Premiere of this Directors' Showcase film from Wojtek Smarzowski crams enough plot developments to fill a mini-series into a 117-minute frenzy of sleaze and corruption. Frantic action and conspiracy make this one of the most frenetic films of the Fest.
