Edinburgh Int'l Film Festival
Started in 1947, the EIFF is one of the true homes of innovative and exciting cinema. For over half-a-century, the Festival has presented some of cinema's most important and exciting moments and played host to the world's greatest filmmakers.
The longest continually running film festival in the world, it has come a long way from its beginnings as a documentary-based festival established in the wake of World War II. Its spirit was and is bold and its focus international: in the early years, it premiered such timeless classics as Robert Flaherty's Louisiana Story, Roberto Rossellini's Germany Year Zero and Kenji Mizoguchi's Ugetsu Monogatari.
