Supporters 2016

Edinburgh International Film Festival would like to thank our 2016 partners:

Official Car Partner – Volvo Cars

The first Volvo rolled off the production line in Gothenburg way back in 1927, and since then we’ve gone from strength to strength, creating world-changing innovations along the way. Today, Volvo is one of the most well-known and respected car brands in the world, with sales in about 100 countries. The company’s corporate and brand strategy “Designed Around You” puts people at the centre, and is a foundation and a guide for the business, the products and the corporate culture.

Official Ice Cream Partner – Graham’s The Family Dairy

Graham’s The Family Dairy was established over 70 years ago and produces an award winning home-grown range of the highest quality food and drink. Their current range includes Graham’s Gold, Graham’s Organic, milk, cheese, cream, butter, spreadable butter, ice-cream, cottage cheese, quark, sour cream and yogurt; which is all made using the finest Scottish ingredients from over 98 farmers.

From their family farm in the heart of Scotland, Graham’s has grown through three generations and is now Scotland’s largest independent dairy since setting up in Bridge of Allan in 1939. Today more than half of Scotland’s households buy Graham’s products and they are now proudly Scotland’s No.1 Dairy Brand.
