Edinburgh International Film Festival is the world’s longest continually-running film festival.
EIFF began life as the International Festival of Documentary Films, and was opened by John Grierson, founder of the British documentary movement. Early audiences were treated to work by filmmakers as varied as Roberto Rossellini, Robert Flaherty, Jacques Tati and pioneering animator Norman McLaren. Edinburgh International Film Festival is part of Centre for the Moving Image, a national organisation with bases in Edinburgh (Filmhouse) and Aberdeen (Belmont Filmhouse), and a mission to be at the forefront of developing a vibrant and successful film and moving image industry and culture across Scotland.
