The Edinburgh International Film Festival, the longest continuously run film festival in the world, takes place over a 12 day period in the second half of June/early July.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the 2020 EIFF is not going ahead as planned. However, it will be presenting a programme online in partnership with Curzon Home Cinema. EIFF will screen a film each day of the 12 day festival, with films playing for between 2 and 12 days, each priced at £9.99. Alongside the films there will be live Q&As with special guests.

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."
