Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller will inject some glamour into this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival, following the announcement that they are to join The Edge of Love director John Maybury on the red carpet at the festival’s Opening Night Gala.

Maybury’s film, based on poet Dylan Thomas’ love life, will screen on Wed 18 Jun. EIFF artistic director Hannah McGill said: ‘I couldn’t be happier . . . [the film] affirms John Maybury as one of our most important directors.’

Tickets for the screening go on sale on Fri 9 May at midday, with the full programme launching on Wed 7 May.
