An Insight into the Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) is a short course offered every year by the University of Edinburgh Centre for Open Learning.
This popular course, run in conjunction with the Edinburgh International Film Festival, offered six film premieres, beginning with the Opening Night Gala, a festival In-Person event, industry events and press screenings. There were also lectures and discussion based tutorials to explore the films seen at the festival. In 2019, the course fee included the Student Delegate Pass, selected public tickets, the EIFF catalogue and the invitation-only opening film screening and party.
Films are carefully selected from the EIFF programme by the course tutors to represent a variety of genres and countries. There will be tutor-led group discussions every day and public lectures at the Festival. No previous knowledge of film studies required. Please note that the course has a limited number of places available so early enrolment is advisable.
We are busy shaping our plans for 2021. Check back for updates!
