I recently watched the documentary Citizen Havel at the Filmhouse, a cultural cinema featuring independent films from all over the world. The Filmhouse is the home of the Edinburgh International Film Festival and hosts many other festivals all year round. The documentary I watched is a part of the Winter Festival of Central and Eastern European Film, which “showcases the enormous riches, in terms of language and culture, from this part of the world. This cultural and linguistic diversity is emphasised by the film programme, which includes works from Hungary, Poland, Serbia, and the Czech Republic.” This festival runs from November 10 – December 13.
The Filmhouse has three state-of-the-art cinemas, as well as a lovely cafe and bar, which is perfect for meeting with a date or friends. Highly recommended for cinephiles.
