Film Fest in the City

Film Fest In The City – 16th to 18th June 2017

Film Fest in the City helped the summer festivals off to a flying start with a record-breaking weekend of free films in St Andrew Square Garden, brought to you by Essential Edinburgh in partnership with Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF).

Over 20,000 people attended Film Fest in the City across the three days from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th June – 11,000 more than in 2016. The fantastic programming by EIFF ensured a packed arena across the weekend with firm favourites Mama Mia and Dirty Dancing on Saturday night – the dance-a-long specials – our busiest yet!

Planning is already underway for Film Fest in the City 2018 – we hope you will join us again!
