Film in the City is coming to Edinburgh â¬next month to whet your appetite for the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

It all kicks off on 8th June in the Grassmarket with a “dance-along” to musical greats ‘Grease’ and ‘Top Hat’ – one the whole family can enjoy.

St Andrew Square will be transformed into an outdoor cinema for screenings of Scottish favourites ‘Gregory’s Girl’ and ‘Local Hero’ amongst others from 13th to 15th June.
To celebrate the launch of the Edinburgh International Film Festival, a jam packed weekend of movie busting activities had been lined up to thrill and entertain the crowds. This programme of events includes movie inspired workshops, engaging Q&As and special animation workshops celebrating the pioneering filmmaker Norman McLaren.

After months of training the Edinburgh Marathon Festival is almost here! Are you one of the thousands of runners that will be taking part this weekend? Wish you all the best for Sunday and all our respect to the runners!

Did you know?

The Edinburgh Marathon is Scotland's most popular marathon. It began in 2003 and has continually grown in popularity and stature, having just received a 97% satifaction rating in a recent Runner's World poll. In numbers, the Edinburgh Marathon is second only to the London Marathon in the UK, with over 16,000 runners taking part. There is also the option of entering relay teams of 4 runners, each running 6.5 miles.

The route has changed over the last few years. Early comments aboout the hill have been accommodated, leading to what is now one of the flattest marathon courses, making the Edinburgh Marathon an excellent race for obtaining a personal best. It also boasts some great sites along the way.
Runners will be assigned one of two starting points, London Road and Regent Road. Runners will then head round Holyrood Park, along Queens Drive to London Road The route carries on down Lochend Road, through Leith, towards the coast before heading along to Musselburgh then the fishing areas of Cockenzie and Port Seton. Next, runners pass through the grounds of Gosford House. Finally, the last stretch takes runners back along the coast to Port Seaton promenade before finishing at Musselburgh Racecourse.

"Imagine a book.

Imagine any page in your imaginary book.

Imagine a single word from that imaginary page in your imaginary book.

And now imagine Colin Cloud reading your mind and telling you that precise word: the one you just plucked out of the thinnest air." - after all you want to see him on the 26th of April at the Dynamic Earth. He is an incredible forensic mind reader!
