EIFF: PLAY – ZOMBIES, RETROGAMING AND A SUMMER FÊTE

Get your game on and try your hand at our retro video game stations at Scott Pilgrim vs The World, relive Shaun of the Dead and avoid the zombies at the post-film survivor’s party, or turn up for Hot Fuzz duty at EIFF’S very own summer fête, with a murderous twist. Welcome to EIFF’s brand new event cinema experience – EIFF: Play.

This year we celebrate writer-director, Edgar Wright, giving you the chance to lose yourself within these weird, wacky, and playfully crafted worlds. EIFF: Play is in partnership with The List.
