6HOW TO DO EIFF1. CHOOSING YOUR FILMS AND EVENTS FINDING FILMS AND EVENTS EIFF feature films, short film programmes and events sit within colour coded strands and are listed alphabetically between pages 14 and 60; Galas, Restrospectives, Beyond EIFF and Outdoor Screenings are listed separately in the Brochure. More information on the strands can be found in the Brochure Index on pages 4 and 5. There's also a vast array of live events ranging from interviews to panel discussions and Q&As. This year EIFF introduces Pathways, helping you to select films from various different strands, but which have a common theme. The different Pathways are explained in more detail on page 8.CALENDAR Check out the day-by-day calendar in the centre of the Brochure (pages 35-38) to help plan your film festival.CLASSIFICATION Most EIFF films do not hold a rating certificate (i.e. PG, 15, 18) at the time of screening. The nature of all films is conveyed in their Brochure listing. If in doubt, phone the Box Office on 0131 623 8030 for advice. FILM EVENT LENGTH Running times are included at the top of each film listing. Most EIFF films include an introduction and/or Q&A which are not included in the running times. If a short film is being shown with a feature, this will be mentioned in the film entry. 2. BOOKING YOUR TICKETS The EIFF Box Office opens to the public at 10am on Thursday 31 May.
