Film fest countdown – at five

THE countdown has already begun, towards the opening night of the Edinburgh International Film Festival, and – in association with national screen agency, Scottish Screen – will be bringing you what it considers to be the top ten Scottish elements of the festival. So, in at number five…

5 – Trailblazers

Says Scottish Screen: “We can’t wait to see what the EIFF has in store with Trailblazers, the new talent strand’s inaugural outing focuses on filmmaking in the UK and there is a well-defined place for Scottish talent on that list. Look out for Screen Academy Scotland graduates, Timo Langer and Robert Glassford, with Dach; David Stoddard, with Waiting for Exit Music; and Hermann Karlsson’s animation, Dog.”
