Edinburgh International Film Festival well underway
Our Film Festival reviewers Shell and Sirin Bryson have had a busy start to the festival and continue to keep their Edinburgh International Film Festival diary for us. You can read all their film related news and reviews their End Titles website and follow their live updates and film tips on twitter.
Here’s their top 5 picks of the EIFF so far:
Since Edinburgh International Film Festival opened on Wednesday, we’ve been pleasantly surprised with the range of films. So far there have been a handful of gems, not to mention some truly outstanding performances (Jessica Brown Findlay in Albatross, and the entire cast of Tomboy) – and one really naff film -cough- Rabies. There promises to be a lot more, with high profile films such as Page Eight and Perfect Sense, but here’s what we reckon are the best so far –
- The Borrower Arrietty – screening June 20th preview here.
- Albatross – screening June 19th & 21st.
- Tomboy – screening June 21st – preview here.
- The Guard – gala only – review here.
- Our Day Will Come – screening June 20th – preview here.
If you’ve missed out on tickets for any of the above, check them out when they come back after the festival – they’re worth it.
The free film screenings continue in St Andrew Square this weekend.
