The chair of the Edinburgh International Film Festival Bob Last has stepped down less than a month before the 69th edition of the event.
Sunset Song producer Last, who is chair of the Centre for the Moving Image, which oversees EIFF, had been in the post since late 2012.
Speaking to Edinburgh-based newspaper The Scotsman, he said: “It’s been an honour and a pleasure to chair the CMI.
“We have made huge strides in developing the business, including raising the profile and standing of EIFF. I wish Ken Hay and the whole team all the best with the ongoing transformation of the CMI.”
