Book a Mini-Break to Edinburgh For Its Annual Film Festival

Every year, the Edinburgh International Film Festival draws in the crowds – and with good reason.

Its long-standing history of screening iconic films and showcasing new talent means that it is one event that film buffs will not want to miss.

So, if you’ve been meaning to book a hotel in Edinburgh and explore the Scottish capital, why not do it when the glamour of the film festival is in full swing?

Edinburgh’s film festival always offers a packed programme of events, with everything from movie screenings to talks with people working in the industry and workshops for anyone who wants to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes.

If you want some reassurance as to the calibre of movies that grace the festival’s screens, then a quick glance at some of its previous premieres will tell you all you need to know.

Pulp Fiction, Blade Runner and Taxi Driver are among the flicks that have been shown in at the Edinburgh film festival.

And that means that you could do some celebrity-spotting during your trip too. If you stay in 5-star hotels in Scotland, you may just find that you are sharing the establishment with some of Hollywood’s rich and famous.

You will have 12 days in which to make the most of the events and screenings that are part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Usually held in June, the event has been running since 1947, during which time it has grown substantially and now has a programme featuring hundreds of productions, as well as its workshops.

These seminars cover everything from editing your own video to how to apply screen makeup, so you could come away with some tips about how to make your very own films!

Whatever your taste in movies, you are bound to find something to keep you entertained at one of the six venues that screen the entries.

There are documentaries, shorts, animations and, of course, feature-length films.

And with offerings from every corner of the globe, you will find that the event lives up to its international name.

So, what more excuse do you need to book a luxury Scottish hotel and visit Edinburgh this summer?
