Established in 1947, the Edinburgh International Film Festival is renowned around the world for discovering and promoting the very best in international cinema and for heralding and debating changes in global filmmaking. EIFF seeks to spotlight the most exciting and innovative new film talent, in a setting steeped in history. Elijah Wood, Nicolas Cage and James Franco are among the big Hollywood names appearing in more than 150 films unveiled for this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival programme.
Artistic director Chris Fujiwara said: “A film festival must keep trying to remain challenging, provocative and responsive.
It’s a diverse and artistically strong programme that will delight and surprise our audiences, both old and new, and reward those who share our passion for exploring cinema in all its forms.”
