TIGER RAID to UK Premiere at 70th Edinburgh Film Festival

Tiger Raid behind-the-scenes

UK Premiere alert! Tiger Raid is heading to the 2016 Edinburgh Film Fest!

The film is in official selection at the 70th edition of the Scottish film festival, premiering in the Best Of British strand 25 June.

The exciting news was announced by the Tiger Raid Twitter page today.

Tiger Raid’s entry in the official 2016 festival brochure describes the film as “cleverly constructed and brimming with tension and pent up violence.”

It also features an alternative synopsis and reveals an 18 certificate for the film.

Two steely-eyed mercenaries engage in foul-mouthed banter and start to strike up unlikely friendship as they head off on a covert mission in the dead of night deep into the desert and enemy territory. Brian Gleeson and Damien Molony play the cold-blooded mercenaries, on a mission to kidnap a local woman, Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), but her abduction leads to complications as secrets and lies are revealed and betrayal becomes the focal point of the bloody plans. Cleverly structured and brimming with tension and pent-up violence. [18]

Take a look at the full festival brochure below (Tiger Raid page 16).


Tiger Raid made its world premiere to critical success at Tribeca Film Festival in April and screened at the Cannes Film Market in May.

The feature is set for two screenings at the Edinburgh Film Festival, 6.10pm 25 June and 8.40pm 26 June.

Tickets go on sale 10 am Friday 27 June, visit the website to book yours!


Tiger Raid is directed by Simon Dixon, written by Simon Dixon, Gareth Coulam Evans and Mick Donnellan, produced by Story Films and Samson Films, co-financed by The Irish Film Board and Ingenious and international sales are handled by Bankside Films.
