Edinburgh International Film Festival: Ten films will be screened outoors at Cinema Under the Stars

A weekend programme of outdoor screenings has been unveiled for August 19-20

Ten films – from family-friendly titles to artists’ films – will be screened outdoors on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, August 19 and 20, as part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF).

“Cinema Under the Stars” takes place in Edinburgh University’s Old College Quad. All screenings are ticketed, but people are asked to “pay what you can” – £2, £4 or £6 per film.

Kate Taylor, EIFF programme director, said: “With Cinema under the Stars we welcome Edinburgh audiences to a weekend of gorgeous, imaginative and uplifting films. We’re particularly excited to present previews of new feature films Scrapper, surely the most charming UK film of the year, and Let The Canary Sing, a film infused with infectious New York punk pop energy. Additionally we’ve got Oscar-winners, we’ve got cats, and we’ve got Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung as lover assassins. Time to bust out the picnic blanket for a magical weekend.”
