    Edinburgh is its Own Star

    One of the great stars of the Edinburgh International Film Festival is Edinburgh itself, a beautiful city and a great place to explore between screenings. This picture was taken in the city's Grassmarket area looking toward Edinburgh Castle (with Union Jack flying), site of the nightly Military Tattoo performances, a crowd-pleasing spectacle. Edinburgh has solidified its position as Scotland's capital with a new parliament following devolution. Photo by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE

Earlier in the day, Schrader participated in an onstage interview with Edinburgh's artistic director Shane Danielsen before a large crowd. Schrader said he believed the current crop of Hollywood executives "didn't love film," and that marketing drives what is made today. He also lamented that the traditional way of "pitching" a story is no longer prevalent in Hollywood today. Photo by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE
