Edinburgh International Film Festival

The Edinburgh International Film Festival is when Scotland's Capital City turns into tinseltown and experiences the glamour of Hollywood for a film-packed fourteen days each summer.

Director Lizzie Francke has brought many big films to the Festival, including LA Confidential, Nil By Mouth and the UK smash hit comedy, The Full Monty. Lizzie Francke has been Director since 1997 - her predecessor was Mark Cousins.

The Edinburgh International Film Festival does not often open with a Scottish film. In 1984 the Scottish film Comfort and Joy opened the Festival, and then - fifteen years later - the 1999 extravaganza was opened by the World Premiere of Ratcatcher. The 1999 headliner was the debut film by Glasgow director Lynne Ramsay.
