Movie Info

Following a number of performers and judges who converge at the annual Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Several tales are interwoven as the judge of a comedy award drives his personal assistant to distraction (and the bottle), a would-be comedienne tries to get her big break, and an actress mounts her earnest and challenging one-woman play.

  • Festival will surely tickle your funny bone.

  • Acidic, dyspeptic, darkly funny and filthily rude, Festival is that rare British beast: a good ensemble drama.

  • Here's a tip: when making a film about the comedy portion of the Fringe Festival of Edinburgh, make it funny.

    June 21, 2007 | Rating: F | Full Review…
  • For the most part, the stories are completely unrelated and therefore suffer from a feeling that some of the strands are completely redundant.

  • The atmosphere of the festival is effectively portrayed ... and there are few decent laughs.

    April 1, 2006 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Festival is like the Nashville of the fringe scene; a multi-character exercise that shows writer/director Annie Griffin's wonderful ability to juggle a large cast with an enjoyable story and constant laughs.

Audience Reviews for Festival

  • Apr 11, 2007
    Set during the 2004 Edinburgh Festival, multiple story lines follow the trials and tribulations of the Fringe comedians and actors. More of a (literally) sexed up TV drama, which captures Edinburgh well, but struggles with the humour much like the characters it portrays.
