We’re celebrating some fantastic news about Not Another Happy Ending – the film has been selected as the closing film of the Edinburgh International Film Festival!
EIFF is globally recognised as an important festival for showcasing exciting new talent, and has hosted the premiers of major films such as Knocked Up, Little Miss Sunshine and Amores Perros. We’re delighted to be part of the 2013 programme, and especially to be selected as the closing film of the festival.
Our producer Claire Mundell describes Not Another Happy Ending as ‘unashamedly upbeat, romantic and funny’, and hopes that the film will help end the festival with a feel-good high. She says:
“We want audiences to be charmed and leave the cinema feeling great, so it’s fitting that our film will be a very happy finale to what will be an exceptional year at the Festival.”
Chris Fujiwara, EIFF Artistic Director, said:
“Speaking as somebody who, before coming to Scotland, knew Scotland partly through its portrayal in films, I’m really excited to find in Not Another Happy Ending a fresh, interesting, and almost idyllic take on the cultural vibrancy of Scottish city life. The film also shows how well the time-honoured genre of romantic comedy can work in the contemporary Scottish context. The film will add just the right note of celebration with which to close our festival this year.”
The world premiere of Not Another Happy Ending will take place in Edinburgh on 30th June, with some of the stars and crew of the film in attendance. We hope to see you there too!
