Oliver Stone to speak at Edinburgh event
Oliver Stone

Edinburgh film fans will have a chance to learn from a Hollwood legend when JFK director Oliver Stone arrives in the city next month.

Hosted by Filmhouse, the director will be interviewed about his thoughts on the film industry at a special March event, including his work on the likes of JFK, Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July,

He’ll also discuss his latest political thriller, Snowden, ahead of its nation-wide release later this year.

Professor Chris Breward, Principal of Edinburgh College of Art, said:

“We are delighted to be able to host Oliver Stone’s visit to the University of Edinburgh. His ground-breaking work resonates across all of our world-leading film-based programmes in Edinburgh College of Art and the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, and speaks to broader student and staff interests in politics, biography, documentary and the power of the media.”

Tickets will go on sale via the Filmhouse website tomorrow for the event on Wednesday 9 March.
