Cinephiles of all persuasions have felt bereft in the last few weeks but couldn’t place the source of their desolation. Was it a repressed trauma, a poorly digested bit of flesh or something more sinister? The Ooh Tray would like to suggest that perhaps you were, for whatever reason, unable to attend this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival and knew you’d have to rely on low quality resources for festival coverage.
Well, the nightmare is over.
The Ooh Tray will be at EIFF over the next fortnight. We’ll be posting reviews of our picks from an excellent line up. Highlights include Hattie Dalton’s Third Star, The Illusionist from Belleville Rendezvous’ Sylvain Chomet, Werner Herzog’s My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done? and Cherry Tree Lane from London to Brighton’s Paul Andrew Williams.
There’s plenty more, including the best in documentary, short films and some lip licking International premieres.
EIFF Artistic Director Hannah McGill commented: ”We’re tremendously excited about the programme this year and especially about how many of our titles are brand new to the world festival circuit and the international industry. We’re looking forward to welcoming an amazing array of guests, and to celebrating EIFF’s 64th year by spreading our excitement about current and classic cinema to our loyal attendees and to new audiences alike.”
The Festival runs from the 16th-27th June, inclusive. Want to know what to look out for at a cinema near you in the near future? The Ooh Tray will provide.
