Stan­dards slip in Edinburgh

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The sad de­cline of the Edinburgh Film Fes­ti­val con­tin­ues. Fol­low­ing com­plaints about a lack­lus­tre pro­gramme and prob­lems with or­gan­i­sa­tion (the gala screen­ing of The Guard was de­layed when the pro­jec­tor broke down) it has now emerged that the event, the old­est film fes­ti­val in Bri­tain, is ad­ver­tis­ing for a new di­rec­tor. James Mul­lighan, only in the job since Jan­uary, is ex­pected to reap­ply. Some­thing needs to be done about the with­er­ing of a once-great in­sti­tu­tion.
