Description

We're hosting drop-in screenings of Festival in Edinburgh (1955) and Edinburgh on Parade (1970). Watch these fascinating records of previous Edinburgh festivals from Scotland’s Moving Image Archive. The films last 14 minutes and run consecutively. Scotland’s Moving Image Archive collects and preserves thousands of film treasures. Our screening gives you a taste of what is available. Festival in Edinburgh is a stylish documentary about the 1954 festivals and Edinburgh on Parade brings the 1969 festivals to life in impressionistic observation.
