Edinburgh International Film Festival opens with Tommy's Honour World Premiere

The 70th Edinburgh International Film Festival opened last night with the World Premiere of Tommy’s Honour. Director Jason Connery and stars Peter Mullan (Sunshine on Leith) and Jack Lowden (War and Peace) were all in attendance at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre.

Shot on location, the film tells the enthralling true story of pioneering father and son duo Old Tom and Young Tommy Morris, the founders of modern golf in Scotland.
Director of Events at VisitScotland, Paul Bush OBE, said: “Tommy’s Honour celebrates Scotland’s beginnings as the home of golf, an accolade we are proud of to this day. The stunning shots of Scotland’s east coast absolutely highlight why we are the perfect stage for golfing events and much more.” 

The 2016 Edinburgh Film Festival is supported by EventScotland and runs until Sunday 26 June. It showcases 61 features from 46 countries including 22 World Premieres, 5 International Premieres, 17 European Premieres and 85 UK Premieres.
