Wednesday sees the start of this years Edinburgh International Film Festival. This is the longest continuos film festival in the world and predates even the Edinburgh International Festival.
After last years somewhat muted festival this year looks like it will restore some of the sparkle to the event.
Highlights include a special screening of David Lean's masterpiece Lawrence of Arabia. Now while I have sent this dozens of times on the small screen the chance to catch the marvellous cinematography on the big screen is irresistible!
Noel Coward commenting on Peter O'Tooles stunning performance in the starring role remarked that if he were any prettier he would be known as "Florence of Arabia."
The festival strs on Wednesday and runs until Sunday the 1st of July.
