The Edinburgh International Film Festival starts a week tomorrow. The EIFF moved from August to June for more "breathing space", but this month's Edinburgh events calendar is still brimming with "festivals" of one kind or another.

We had the Meadows Festival this past weekend and the Leith Festival, with around 100 events around Leith, starts on Friday.

We've also got a festival for sport and a festival for beer, and military styled celebrations for the three-day Armed Forces Day, which Edinburgh is host city for this year.

Tomorrow (Thursday), sees the Festival Fringe Society's brochure hit the streets and web. The Comedy Festival also puts out its 2011 festival brochure tomorrow. The umbrella festival for the "big four" venues this year has joined forces with contemporary music festival the Edge Festival.

And before the August festival maelström descends upon the city, there's next month's Edinburgh Jazz Festival.

Yes, festivals are very much on the mind.
