Sophia Myles attended the Launch of 61st Edinburgh International Film Festival Programme at the Filmhouse in Edinburgh yesterday. As previously announced her new film ‘Hallam Foe’ will open the festival and you can win tickets for the Opening Night Gala. Visit the festival’s official site to find out how. Glasgow’s The Herald has this Sophia-relevant quote:
Ms Myles, who attended the launch of the festival programme yesterday, said: “Hallam Foe is perfect for the opening of the film festival, because David has filmed the city so beautifully, it really is the star of the film.”
They also have a little picture of her at the launch event on the front site and Mariana has sent in some more. Many thanks. Enjoy these pictures as I’m sure they’re the last we’ll see of Sophia Myles before she heads off to LA where shooting for ‘Moonlight’ is due to begin next week.
004 Programme Launch
As announced here previously ‘Hallam Foe’ will be shown at the 61st Edinburgh Film Festival. It has now been announced that the film will actually open the festival. This certainly is great news! Read the announcement here on the official site.
This year’s official theme of the film festival is ‘The Written Word’, and Hallam Foe is an ideal choice for the opening film as it is an adaptation of a Scottish novel – largely set and shot in Edinburgh. The Festival’s Artistic Director, Hannah McGill, had this to say about the film:
“Hallam Foe is a stunning achievement by all concerned – a film with an unforgettable atmosphere and some of the finest performances of the year. We’re enormously proud to have the film open what we anticipate to be a landmark film festival.”
