In association with UNESCO and to join in the celebrations, ESFF are screening a 1920 version of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde as well as a selection of Edinburgh and Scottish-made Gothic short horrors and suspense films! From rental properties in a neighbourhood populated by bizarre inhabitants to sinister nuns with a penchant for brain surgery to Nosferatu-esque dream demons, there’s something unsettling around every corner.
Last Exit to Ricklesburgh will be heading to this year’s Edinburgh Short Film Festival!
The screening will take place on Sunday 15 November at Summerhall from 7:30pm. Come and join us for an evening of fantastic films and excellent beers!
Screening their regular, eclectic and diverse programme of outstanding and award-winning contemporary British and short cinema in November 2015, the festival is hosting films and guests from the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival, screening Italian shorts curated by the Sardinia Film Festival, hosting a night of Edinburgh Gothic shorts (of which Last Exit to Ricklesburgh is part of) celebrating Robert Louis Stevenson’s birth by showing the 1920 silent movie short film ‘Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde’ and hosting special retrospective screenings of short film work by the Student Academy Award nominated film-maker and award-winning artist Damon Mohl.
