The Edinburgh International Film Festival, the longest continuously run film festival in the world, takes place over a 12 day period at the end of June. The EIFF in 2015 is the fourth year with artistic director Chris Fujiwara at the helm. He is widely credited with helping to restore the EIFF"s reputation in 2012, after a poorly received EIFF 2011. The EIFF 2015 programme has still be announced.

Festival Background

Launched in 1947, alongside the Edinburgh International Festival, the EIFF was one of the world's first international film festivals. Traditionally, the Edinburgh International Film Festival took place in August, at the same time as Edinburgh's various other August festivals. Former EIFF artistic director Hannah McGill, said the EIFF's move to June, was to give the Film Festival more "breathing space."
