Games films’ city premieres

Have your say

The Capital is to host the world premiere of four films central to this summer’s London 2012 Olympics.

A new film from Asif Kapadia, entitled The Odyssey, will join three others by leading UK filmmakers that had already been confirmed. A Running Jump by Mike Leigh, The Swimmer by Lynne Ramsay and What If, directed by Streetdance directing duo Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini will also be shown.

These four films will receive their world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on June 24.
