EIFF prides itself on being accessible to all. We want to ensure that everyone has access to brilliant cinema and the education and learning benefits it creates, without financial barriers standing in the way.

For Ed Film Fest At Home, we’re introducing Pay It Forward, where you have the opportunity to gift a ticket. In choosing to gift the price of a film purchase, you provide the opportunity for someone to experience Ed Film Fest At Home where they would otherwise be unable to watch.

Our online festival, in partnership with Curzon, is a unique opportunity to reach out to new audiences and we hope you will join us in helping make sure that no one has to miss out. For every Pay It Forward ticket purchased, EIFF will match it! 

If you, or someone you know, would like access to one (or more) of the Pay It Forward tickets please email marketing@edfilmfest.org.uk

Your donation goes towards the cost of a ticket, if you’re a UK tax payer you can Gift Aid your donation.
