Edinburgh Film Festival line-up announced

Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) organizers have finalized plans for its industry program content including an onstage one-on-one career interview with Oscar-winning cinematographer Chris Menges by fellow craftsman Seamus McGarvey during this year’s fest.
This year’s industry content is planned to roll out across nine days during this year’s festival with discussions focusing on all areas of the filmmaking process.
The program will also focus on moving from first to second features with speakers including Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) and Nick Whitfield (Skeletons) lined up for a panel named “First Feature and Beyond.”

The Danish Film Institute is also partnering with the EIFF Industry team to host a discussion on Danish documentaries featured in the EIFF program.
Producers Peter Engel (The Ambassador) and Helle Faber (Au Pair; Putin’s Kiss) aim to examine the Danish documentary landscape and their successful co-producing experiences in the Danish Documentary Focus.
Cinematographer Seamus McGarvey returns to the series of conversations he has hosted in recent years with colleagues working in his field and will interview Menges (Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close).
Other filmmakers involved in the industry events at the EIFF include James Marsh and Tom Bradby (Shadow Dancer) who will discuss the writer/director relationship and Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio) tapped to talk about the use of sound design and music to enhance audience’s movie going experience.
The British Film Institute, Creative England and Film London are also partnering with EIFF on events during the Festival.
The BFI will be running a “Meet The Funders” panel with reps from Creative England, Creative Scotland, Film Agency for Wales, Screen Yorkshire and others, advising on the funds they offer.
