The Disney-Pixar animated film “Brave”, which is set in mythical Scotland will receive a glittering European premiere in Edinburgh, on the closing night of the 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Chris Fujiwara, Artistic Director, Edinburgh International Film Festival, said: “We’re delighted to host the premiere of Brave and continue the Festival’s long relationship with Disney. Though we are an international film festival, we’re mindful that we have a special responsibility to Scotland’s cinematic image. It makes perfect sense that this film, which is so strongly tied to the cultural mythology of Scotland and the beauty of the Scottish landscape, and in which Scottish talent has such a significant involvement, should be part of our festival.”
The 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival takes place 20 June – 1 July 2012.
