On the occasion of its 2011 edition the Edinburgh International Film Festival opens new venues and explores interactions between music and films.
From 20 to 24 June as part of this ‘Sound Tracks’ strand, the Institut français welcomes five bands from Rennes, Brittany for an exciting programme of cinéconcerts – live new tailor-made soundtracks for cult films – creating a dialogue between their music and the images screened.
