The Edinburgh International Film Festival, which runs from 15th to 26th June on it's consecutive 65th year also announced it has abandoned red carpet photo-calls and star-studded premieres in an attempt to rip up the traditional format seen at Cannes and Venice.
Mike Skinner, the rapper, poet laureate, lyrical genius, producer and now film score composer, will be writing new material when he writes the score for the The Inbetweeners new movie due for release later this year. Mike Skinner is currently closing his career as The Streets whilst playing out a long list of Summer Festival dates which includes headlining The Relentless Freeze Festival currently booked as The Streets last ever London show. This is the end of an era in music, though certainly not the end of Mike Skinner's talents. He has spoke of making a film which he’s described as a punchy thriller that is set in a hospital typically written, produced and released by himself and his working partner Ted Mayhem.
Back in February, Mike Skinner was confirmed alongside eight other guests to curate the 65th Edinburgh Film Festival.
