We’re all deeply shocked and saddened to hear about the sudden closure of the Filmhouse.

The Filmhouse was a treasured city institution and has played a vital role in the wider arts community over the years. Lots of our staff work, and have worked, at the Filmhouse and our thoughts are with them and the other people involved.

So important was the Filmhouse that it seems scarcely credible that it, the Belmont and the EIFF would be lost forever.

In the meantime, we are working hard to find alternative venues for the screenings we had programmed for the Filmhouse and hope to update our
events page very soon.
