Edinburgh has long been a centre for the development of film culture and industry, with a strong sense of creative impetus threaded throughout its history, and EIFF has played a significant part in sustaining this.

We are thrilled to present a special selection of events and screenings that celebrate and pay tribute to our shared heritage, and offer fresh perspectives and contemporary reinterpretation of archives and their importance in modern society.
