Video - International Festival's Fergus Linehan
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 Fergus Linehan, Festival Director of the Edinburgh International Festival (4-28 August 2017), telling us all about the Festival, why festivals are important, and what it's like to work with the other festivals.
...in a sense [festivals] keeps us open to new things and it's a sense of possibility within a festival that you don't get at any other time of the year...
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
The Edinburgh International Festival runs from 4-28 August 2017. More information about the Festival.
Throughout 2017, we are celebrating the 70th anniversary of Edinburgh's Festivals. Find out more about the 70th anniversary.
