WHISKY GALORE! is showing at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival on 17 June 2011 at 15.45.

Alexander Mackendrick’s 1949 Ealing comedy (adapted from Compton Mackenzie’s novel, which in turn was inspired by a real incident) is an absolute joy – warm and wise and drolly hilarious, with wonderful performances and beautiful locations on the island of Barra.

The brand new restoration of the film will then be showcased with a special week long run at The Filmhouse from July 29th, before a brand new DVD and blu-ray release (the first ever) on August 8th.
