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."
