Edinburgh Film Festival

The Edinburgh International Film Festival will promote Scottish producers at four International Festivals over the next year through their 2010 'Features Scotland' programme.

This year's retrospective at the Edinburgh International Film Festival will screen neglected British films from the Sixties and Seventies.

Toy Story 3 is to have a 3D Gala screening at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival on Saturday 19 June, the film's first UK screening in 3D, after it opens in the United States the previous day.

It's thoroughly fitting that an Edinburgh-set, Edinburgh-made film should open the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2010

Edinburgh-set animated feature The Illusionist is to open the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2010 on 16th June. The opening gala will also be the inaugural EIFF premiere for the Edinburgh Festival theatre.

The Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) will be rolling out the red carpet at the Festival Theatre for the first time this June. The theatre has secured £245,000 in funding from the Scottish Government to install new digital cinema facilities.

The Edinburgh International Film Festival and Filmhouse today announced the departure of Ginnie Atkinson (second from left) to pursue new projects.

Thugs, footmen, dignitaries, doctors, and ladies of the night are being sought for a new comedy feature film about Edinburgh's famous grave-robbers-turned-murderers Burke and Hare. Universal Extras are holding auditions for the parts at the Tolbooth in Stirling on Thursday 17th December from 9am to 5pm (people can turn up any time on the day according to the announcement).

The 7th Edinburgh Mountain Film Festival returns to the Capital from 15-18 October, with controversial American climber Timmy O'Neill topping the bill. O'Neill, 40, hails from Boulder, Colorado and has made his name in the extreme climbing discipline of ‘buildering' which involves climbing city centre buildings and structures without a rope. ‘Slacklining' - walking along a rope strung between rock towers - is another of this extreme climber's favourite pastimes.

Does the world really need another blaxploitation spoof?
