Filmhouse Recommends is our daily pick of three films from the 2015 Edinburgh International Film Festival that we think our audiences will particularly enjoy. Check back each day during the Festival for tomorrow's recommendations!


Nearby Sky (18:10, Filmhouse 2)

Director Nujoom Alghanem's documentary reveals the story of Fatima Ali Al Hameli, the first Emirati woman to take part in Abu Dhabi's camel auctions and to enter her camels in the UAE's prestigious camel beauty pageant. A wonderfully determined character blessed with gritty charm and a never-give-up spirit, her forthrightness and gritty charm combine to make this an enthralling portrait of a true pioneer.


Imagine Waking Up Tomorrow and All Music Has Disappeared
(18:15, Cineworld)

A brilliant documentary about an uncomprimising musical mind. Bill Drummond, formerly of The KLF and K Foundation, deals with his illustrious past in a few broad strokes - including an excellent sequence in which the filmmakers stop passersby in London to get them to sing Doctorin' the Tardis, as Drummond won't allow the song to be played. Instead, the film focusses on his latest fascinating activities, including the enthralling recording process and performance of a new piece by The17.


Black Mountain Poets (20:40, Odeon)

Following on from last year's 'indie folk star movie' Benny & Jolene and seasonal romantic comedy A Wonderful Christmas Time, Black Mountain Poets is the final part in Welsh director Jamie Adams' Modern Romance Trilogy. An improvised comedy shot over five days, it follows two women who go on the run and assume the identities of the Wildings, a pair of renowned sisters. But more trouble ensues when a poetic hunk comes between them.
