A new Gala strand is designed to present major UK premieres.

The Edinburgh International Film Festival (June 18-29) is to introduce number of new strands will be added to the 2014 programme, including a focus on German cinema, as submissions open today.

The new sections will include a Gala strand, which aims to present major UK premieres of both British and international films, and a strand of family films entitled For the Family.

Genre films and edgy fare from around the world will be featured in “an even more adventurous and farther-reaching strand than the previous ‘Night Moves’”, according to the festival.

In addition, a New Perspectives strand will showcase new fiction and documentary filmmaking that raises challenging questions about the medium.

Strands continued from 2013 include American Dreams, Director’s Showcase, Films on Film and the continuation of Eiff’s strand of films programmed by teenagers aged 16-19 for their peers.
