EIFF 2006 to watch list


The madness is about to begin again for the 60th year of the Edinburgh International Film Festival, and I've got an incredibly packed schedule. I've taken two weeks holidays and the plan is to see almost fifty movies...yes, fifty, and I am mad.

The list of films I am going to try and catch is over the page, and it's a lengthy one...it's taken me most of the afternoon to work out what to see, when, which to pay for, etc. etc.

During the festival I will try and post some news, but I suspect my manic posting fingers will be somewhat stretched and so I have some help drafted in for a couple of weeks. Some temporary writing cover will appear, so please be kind.

The festival kicks off on the 13th of August this year, for the press anyway, and I'll be going until the 26th, in the meantime, have a look over the page for the list of titles that I'm heading off to see.

The following list is the coming month, so if you're viewing this and it's still July you won't see the end of the festival. I just couldn't be bothered retyping it all!
