Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Jane Eyre, The Help among films to be screened.

UK trade body the Film Distributors’ Association (FDA) is launching “Scottish Screenings”, a three-day event (Sept 4-6 ) at Cineworld Edinburgh, at which 16 autumn films will be previewed for film journalists, editors and critics from Scotland.

Among titles will be Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Jane Eyre, The Help, Colombiana, What’s Your Number, Friends with Benefits, Crazy Stupid Love and Drive.

So far 40 journalists have registered.

The FDA ran a similar screenings event for UK regional media in London in May as a successor to its popular regional screenings tour Cinema Days, which ran for 20 years.
