In 2022, EIFF returns to its place at the heart of the Edinburgh festivals summer season. Set against the backdrop of the world's largest global gathering of culture, the festival is hosting its 75th edition from 12- 20 August.  

The new pass includes: 

  • Select P&I screenings 

  • 10 tickets to films of your choice* 

  • Opportunity to book tickets to any public, non-gala screening* 

  • Discount in Filmhouse Café/bar 

  • Concession pricing for public screenings and events  

Passes are now available for press working in the film industry and screen sectors. To register for a pass, complete the registration form:

  • Films and events are available to book online from 12 noon on 20 July 2022 

  • Be quick! Tickets are offered on a first come, first served basis 


  • P&I screenings will be scheduled to show a number of films from our programme. Places can be booked through the EIFF website once logged in as a press passholder. 

  • Please note, submitting the press registration form does not guarantee that you will receive accreditation. Passes will not be granted to anyone whose principal purpose for attending our event is, in our judgement, for reasons other than covering them as working news media.  

  • * Subject to availability. Only one ticket per screening can be booked. The allocation does not include gala screenings, i.e. Opening Night, Central Gala, or Closing Night. Tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis.
