With dead reindeer, missing children, apocalyptic prophecy, and the promise of a visit from the devil himself on Christmas Eve, it can only mean one thing...

Once again EIFF invites you to attend Dark Xmas, our annual celebration of alternative, provocative and controversial Christmas cinema from around the world, this year featuring festive cult classics with an edge from Finland and Spain. Join us as we venture into a weird, wild winter wonderland where Santa Claus coming to town is an emergency and church bells ringing may signal the end of the world. Is it a wonderful life? Let’s wait and see.

Happy Christmas from EIFF!
