The International Festival of Documentary Films, a programme of documentaries, was presented by the Edinburgh Film Guild alongside the 1947 Edinburgh International Festival. At the time, Cannes and Venice were the most significant annual film festivals.
Over the subsequent years, the programme expanded to include fiction films and experimental work in addition to documentary. The film festival shows a range of feature-length films and documentaries as well as short films, animations and music videos.
