EIFF enjoys 10% rise in admissions for 2013

The 67th edition of the Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF), which ended on Sunday, issued more than 44,000 tickets across the 12 day Festival, a ten per cent increase on last year’s figure.

The Festival, which closed with new Scottish romantic comedy, Not Another Happy Ending, sold tickets for its multiple venues across the city, which included the EIFF’s home at Filmhouse, Cineworld at Fountain Park, Festival Theatre Edinburgh, delegate centre venue, The Traverse, and new venues for 2013, The Dominion and Odeon Wester Hailes.

Ken Hay, CEO Edinburgh International Film Festival, commented; “We are delighted with how audiences have engaged with this year’s Festival. As well as the increase in the number of admissions, there have been unprecedented levels of online interaction across multiple digital platforms.

“Our planning for the 68th EIFF in 2014 is well underway: Chris Fujiwara and his team have already started to construct another programme that will offer hidden gems, discoveries and films to challenge and dare our growing audience.”
