The EFG 2020/21 Season – continuing under difficult circumstances

Dear all,

The Edinburgh Film Guild will be putting on screenings in the 2020/21 season. However, we are unable to open our little cinema as it could not safely accommodate more than a few viewers. Screenings will be limited in number as a result. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, so will our future screening options. We will be keeping everyone up to date via email and word of mouth.

We are looking at alternative ways to share our love of cinema with you. Every generation has its trials and the EFG has continued through ninety years without interruption, and we are doing all we can to keep it going through this pandemic.

We are currently planning various screenings at other venues. As the situation is in constant flux it is not possible to provide annual or multi-screening tickets.

In addition to the usual screening fees and professional services associated with running a charity, the alternative venues charge for the use of their facilities. Along with social distancing restricting the number of seats, this does have a knock-on effect to the seat price.

The Guild continues to operate on a non-profit basis and endeavours to offer the opportunity to see and discuss films that would otherwise not receive a screening.

Your attendance and donations are vital to us continuing to put on screenings so we can enjoy these movies together.

We will endeavour to resume screenings in our cinema and re-open our bar as soon as possible.

We are a volunteer run membership organisation and as such your suggestions and feedback are always very welcome. If you wish to contribute or have feedback you wish to share you can contact us via the contact form.

Best wishes,
The Edinburgh Film Guild
