  • Edinburgh Film Festival Student Critics

The 2019 Edinburgh International Film Festival is in full swing, with the festival's annual Best of The Fest selection bringing down the curtain on Sunday 30 July. Over the course of the festival, a group of ten emerging critics have been honing their craft on EIFF's Student Critics Programme.

In its seventh year, the programme offers extensive mentoring and support to student film critics as they visit the festival, with Eye For Film's Amber WilkinsonScreenDaily's Fionnuala Halligan and Nicholas Barber (BBC Culture, The Economist) helping the critics hone their craft.

We're delighted to be able to support these new critics by publishing their work here – click the links to read EIFF film reviews from each of this year's Student Critics, which we'll be publishing in the coming days...
