The 61st Edinburgh International Film Festival programme was launched at the city's Filmhouse cinema this morning.
Incoming artistic director Hannah McGill played to a fairly packed house as she announced the details of the latest edition, which will feature 120 feature films from 31 countries, including 101 new features.
Highlights include Anton Corbijn's Control, Gus Van Sant's Paranoid Park and his little seen debut Mala Noche, Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof, Michael Winterbottom's A Mighty Heart and the latest from the Pixar stable, Ratatouille.
The opening night film will be, as previously announced, David Mackenzie's Hallam Foe, and the director was on hand to offer his support for the festival.
He said: "Every single film I have made has had its UK premiere here."
Sophia Myles, pictured above right, who co-stars alongside Jamie Bell in the film, which is set in the Scots capital, was also in attendance.
She said: "I'd never been to Scotland before I made this film. I'm glad to be back here. This choice is so appropriate as Edinburgh is the star of the film and David shot the cityscape so beautifully."
McGill also announced a number of guests who will be give onstage talks, including directors John Waters, Judd Apatow, Stephen Frears and Mike Leith, plus actors Samantha Morton, Chris Cooper, Bob Hoskins, Stellan Skarsgard, Tilda Swinton and Julie Delpy - who's film Two Days In Paris will close the festival.
We'll be bringing you details of all the films in the festival soon, plus look out for reviews in the coming weeks.
