EIFF announces the Best of the Fest: additional screenings you may have missed

She's Funny That Way

Featuring Big Gold Dream, The Legend of Barney Thomson, Inside Out and Amy

Edinburgh International Film Festival have announced the line up for Best of the Fest 2015.

Best of the Fest is a one-day event giving slow-footed film lovers a chance to catch up on the screenings they may have missed over the 12-day festival.

If you missed the buzz or have only just got round to reading the reviews, you have one last chance to catch up on the most exciting and critically-acclaimed films from EIFF. Whether you’re a fan of love and romance or horror and crime, three cinemas across Edinburgh – The Filmhouse, Cineworld and Odeon Lothian Road – have your back.

Among the films on show are some we rated pretty highly. There’s Disney’s latest animation Inside Out, screwball comedy She’s Funny That Way and 45 Years, the tale of a couple heading towards their 45th wedding anniversary. As well as this, you can catch Asif Kapadia’s intimate and moving documentary about Amy Winehouse, Amy.
