How the Movie Brats Took Over Edinburgh – book launch

St Andrews Film Studies new publication on the Edinburgh International Film Festival, How The Movie Brats Took Over Edinburgh, received a belated book launch on Friday 12th August 2011 as part of the Edinburgh Book Fringe.

The author, Matthew Lloyd, gave an anecdotal account of several key years in the festival’s history before taking questions from the audience and signing copies. There was a sizeable audience present in the cosy confines of Word Power Books, including a number of EIFF and Filmhouse insiders. Lynda Myles and David Will, whose tenures as Festival Director are amply discussed in the book, also put in an unexpected but welcome appearance.
