Established in 1947, Edinburgh International Film Festival is renowned around the world for discovering and promoting the very best in international cinema and for heralding and debating changes in global filmmaking.  The 2016 Festival, running from 15th-26th June, marks the 70th edition of the Festival, making it the longest continually running film festival in the world.

Carol Graham, Marketing Director of Graham’s The Family Dairy, said:“We’re delighted to be partnering with the EIFF for a second year running and look forward to an exciting programme of screenings and events. Cinema and ice cream go hand in hand so it’s a natural fit for us.

"To mark our second year as official sponsor, we wanted to create something a bit different to celebrate the love of the silver screen here in Scotland’s film-loving capital, and these new cinema inspired flavours are just a bit of fun.  My personal favourite is the popcorn ice cream and I look forward to enjoying it alongside a fantastic line-up of festival films this summer.”
