St Andrew Square

Located at the east end of George Street, this is the home of Edinburgh International Film Festival's 'Film Fest in the City'.

In partnership with Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival will present the single screen film version of Isaac Julien’s Lessons of the Hour at St Andrew’s Square – a poetic meditation on the life and times of Frederick Douglass, the visionary African American orator, philosopher, intellectual, and self-liberated freedom-fighter, who was born into slavery in Maryland, USA. 

St Andrew Square is on street level and is accessible by wheelchair.

There will be accessible toilets on site. If you require a wheelchair space for the screening of Isaac Julien’s Lessons of the Hour, please call the Edinburgh International Film Festival team on 0131 623 8030.
