Ed Film Fest
It's been pretty quiet here on the blooging front but I have an excellent reason why...
Over the past week, well from 22nd to 27th I was at the Edinburgh International Film Festival armed with my press pass, heavy catalogue and a coffee for nearly every screening.
There other film festivals that I should but have yet to make it to, (Berlin, Rotterdam, I'm coming for you next year!) and I'm working my way up to the festivals much further a-field, such as TIFF and Sundance and who knows, maybe I'll get to Cannes one day. But for now, I'm happy with my Scottish adventure 3rd time round.
As I wa spart of press, most of my reviews will be up on Vulturehound - links to follow - with one or two up on here. This was my watch list for the festival, an assortment of press screenings and ticketed events:
Every time I go to Edinburgh I usually save a day to go exploring BUT as this was delightfully full on week, I didn't but I get to try out a few new places such as The Owl & Deer cafe not far from where I stayed (they make the best french toast) and The Elephant House, the place where J.K Rowling wrote her Potter books, but I went for the great coffee and cake! And of course I had to go to my favourite place, Saint Giles Cafe & Bar, where the house speciality is always a treat. Fun fact, its the only dish I where I'll eat bacon and brie (usually hate both, the food is that good). If you ever find yourself in Edinburgh, definitely try at least one of these places!
