Another batch of stills from the 2017 Edinburgh Short Film Festival, week 2 and our closing night!
We’re delighted that The Wee Review dropped by our closing night at Summerhall on Saturday Nov 11th and pretty happy with the review they wrote as well!
It was a great night and we were very honoured to host no less than 34 guests and film-makers from literally all over the world!
Here’s to next year!
We’re loving the review of Day 7 at the Edinburgh Short Film Festival by The Wee Review which took place on Friday November 10th at Summerhall!
We had around 26 guests and visiting film-makers and it was especially wonderful to see all these people from all different cultures from across the world, mixing, having fun and talking films!
If you haven’t come across our rather wonderful 2017 print programme (designed by the elegant pen of Federica Pugliese), we’re delighted to be able to supply the link to our ISSU copy here:
