As Edinburgh's Festivals celebrate the 70th anniversary of the festival city, we thought it would be great to hear from the people who put these incredible events together - the festival directors and producers. 

In the first of a series of videos, here's Dr Simon Gage OBE, of the Edinburgh International Science Festival (1-16 April 2017) telling us all about his work, Edinburgh's festival tradition, and the importance of working with the city's other major festivals.

...a festival is a wonderful way of celebrating something that isn't normally celebrated... provides you with an intensity and an urgency... you can try new things, experience new things...

In early 2017 we launched a range of videos featuring the directors and producers of Edinburgh's major festivals. These include:

Science Festival | Military Tattoo | Jazz & Blues Festival | Art Festival | Storytelling Festival | International Festival | Fringe | Children's Festival | Book Festival | Film Festival | Edinburgh's Hogmanay

Edinburgh International Science Festival runs from 1-16 April 2017. More information about the Science Festival

Throughout 2017, we are celebrating the 70th anniversary of Edinburgh's Festivals. Find out more about the 70th anniversary.
