The 72nd Edinburgh International Film Festival programme was announced today, and we’re delighted that a number of Vertigo Releasing titles are included. As previously revealed, this summer’s feel good ‘splash hit’ SWIMMING WITH MEN, directed by Oliver Parker (Dad’s Army, Johnny English: Reborn) will close out the festival. Swimming With Men stars Rob Brydon alongside a host of other British actors, including Jim Carter, Daniel Mays, Charlotte Riley, Thomas Turgoose, Adeel Akhtar, Rupert Graves, Nathaniel Parker and Jane Horrocks. Cast and crew will be on hand in Edinburgh to introduce the screening at the iconic Festival Theatre. The star of Swimming With Men, ROB BRYDON, will also appear at an In Person event, chatting about his previous and upcoming work.
ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE is a sublime mash of genres: part classic zombie movie, part comedy and part musical, this eagerly anticipated Scottish film will have its UK Premiere in the country where it was filmed and produced. Mia Wasikowska and Christopher Abbott star in Nicolas Pesce’s (The Eyes of My Mother) brand new film PIERCING, a gloriously grisly psychosexual feast for the eyes.
Edinburgh International Film Festival takes place from 20 June – 1 July, check out the full programme here.
