The Edinburgh Film Festival Best of the Fest programme has now been announced for Sunday 1 July.

Festival closing film Brave 3D (see my round-up of what the critics have been saying) opens the proceedings at 11am at Cineworld.

The Best of the Fest programme also includes a number of Michael Powell Award contenders - festival director Chris Fujiwara's highly recommended Berberian Sound Studio (pictured above), Northern Ireland set thriller Shadow Dancer, fest fave The Imposter, and mature drama Life Just Is.

Euan just posted his review of Future My Love in his EIFF documentaries round-up ('This “experimental documentary” is a clumsy mixture of character study, environmental sciences and tone poem,' he says).

The line-up also includes a couple of creature features: popular low-budget comedy Grabbers (see interview with the stars) and Rent-a-cat.

Tickets for Best of the Fest are £6 (£5 concessions) for all screenings.
