‘The Outrun’ will open this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival 

The relaunched Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) has announced that this year’s 77th edition of the Festival will open with Nora Fingscheidt’s adaptation of Amy Liptrot’s best-selling memoir, The Outrun.

The Outrun stars Saoirse Ronan (Ladybird, Brooklyn) as a young woman who finds herself washed up back home on the Scottish islands of Orkney as she battles to rebuild her life after a decade of addiction. Ronan, who also co-produced the film, will join filmmaker Nora Fingscheidt (System Crasher) in attendance at this year’s EIFF, alongside writer Amy Liptrot and the film’s producers Sarah Brocklehurst and Dominic Norris.

The film had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, screening at the Berlinale, and will be released by STUDIOCANAL in the UK and Ireland on September 27, 2024.

The full EIFF programme will be launched on Thursday 4 July when tickets will also go on sale.
