Edinburgh Film Festival launches new delegate pass

DELEGATES to the Edinburgh International Film Festival can now choose one of two passes, one that is mainly about seeing the movies, the other – a new type of pass – about “learning, exchanging information and networking”.

Yesterday, delegate registration was opened at the festival, which has a new artistic director, Hannah McGill.

‘Early bird’ prices for the passes apply until the 16th of next month. The festival is taking place between August 15 and 26.

The movies-orienatated pass is called Industry Access; the other is called Industry Events.
