Edinburgh International Film Festival

Edinburgh International Film Festival

EIFF seeks to represent the most innovative and adventurous developments in world cinema, to bring worthy filmmakers to local and worldwide attention, and to provide a forum for appreciative and informed discussion of their work.

EIFF is especially interested in films by emerging filmmakers whose work manifests stylistic boldness, strength of form, and the ambition to use the medium in a way that resists cliché.


The longest continually running film festival in the world. Over the years, EIFF has continued to bring UK audiences the most innovative and exciting films from around the world.

Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and a delightful place in which to showcase and discover new cinema.

All films selected for the EIFF programme, with the exception of short animation films, must be UK premieres. EIFF is also noted for presenting world, international and European premieres.

EIFF will not consider any film that has already had a public screening within the UK. The only exception to this rule is in the case of short animation films, which can be considered even if they have had a previous UK screening.

EIFF will not consider any film that has been publicly made available online.
