EIFF Patrons

Edinburgh International Film Festival has been at the heart of Scotland’s film culture for over 70 years, but we are more than just somewhere to watch films. We’re a festival of discovery, diversity and debate, a showcase of the world’s best films and filmmakers, and a platform that inspires, entertains, illuminates, and challenges audiences to better understand the world around them.

By becoming an EIFF Patron, you will join a circle of like-minded individuals who share our passion for film, and play a key part in shaping EIFF’s future.

Leave a Legacy

In 2019 Edinburgh International Film Festival celebrates its 73rd edition as the world’s longest continually running film festival. We wish to ensure that future generations are able to enjoy and be inspired by the exciting programme of films, events and learning opportunities we are presenting all year round.

By remembering EIFF in your will, you will be helping us to continue investing in showing incredible films each year, celebrating world cinema in all its brilliance and diversity as well as in continuing to develop our ambitious film education programme.
