Book cinema tickets for Daphne

Emily Beecham's lead performance in Peter Mackie Burns' debut feature earned her the award for Best Performance in a British Feature Film at EIFF. Rich in memorably structured scenes and offering a vibrant soundtrack, Daphne is the story of a young woman juggling a hectic nightlife with a busy restaurant job, who finds her life thrown off balance after she saves the life of a young shopkeeper one night. The defiant façade that she has built to protect herself gradually starts to crack and she takes a fresh look at her fractured life and relationships.

PLEASE NOTE: The screening on Sunday 24 September followed by a Q&A with director Peter Mackie Burns is now SOLD OUT.


All screenings of Daphne will have audio description, and the 18:15 screening on Mon 2 Oct will have onscreen captions.
