10 Reasons To Love The Edinburgh International Film Festivalby The Daily Eye Team June 22 2017, 1:35 pm
Edinburgh is host to the world's longest continually-running film festival, which has had its fair share of milestones since launching in 1947. Ahead of the 2017 event, MARC DAVID JACOBS takes a look at what makes the Edinburgh International Film Festival unique.After a semi-scandalous visit nearly two decades before, Huston returned to Edinburgh in 1972 to present his latest film, Fat City, on the festival's opening night.Any fears of a repeat performance were quickly allayed when the actor-director was quoted as saying 'I rarely go to [film festivals]. The only one as such that's worth a damn is Edinburgh. My God, it's unique.'The festival was so pleased that it had a separate page of Huston's words specially printed.
