Donald Storytelling 975x400

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 our latest video, here's Donald Smith, Director of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival (21-31 October 2017) telling us all about the Festival, why festivals are important, and what it's like to work with the other festivals.

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

The Scottish International Storytelling Festival runs from 21-31 October 2017. More information about the Festival
