CHOOSING FILMS AND EVENTS
The hardest part – but we like to make it easy! We’ve divided our brochure into strands – grouped by themes and focuses – and included an introduction to explain each one. Each strand in the festival programme will also have a headline film and an older retrospective film, which both address the strand’s flavour.

TAKE YOUR SEAT
There are no adverts or trailers before EIFF screenings, so the stated start time is when the film, event or introduction will begin. Latecomers may not be admitted. Please note the feature film presentation will start at the advertised time.
Many of our screenings have live introductions and/or Q&A sessions with on-screen talent, directors, writers and producers – there’s no better chance to ask your questions and get inspired by the best in the business! See www.edfilmfest.org.uk/QandAs
