'There really is no such thing as Art. There are only artists'
Ernst Gombrich

The Edinburgh International Festival is an annual gathering of some of the greatest creative minds of our time. To celebrate their presence at the heart of our programme, the Festival has commissioned video portraits exploring the artist’s experience from the point of view of five celebrated Festival artists.

The films present interviews with actors, musicians, writers and directors talking about the art that they love, and features Juliette Binoche, Simon McBurney, Nicola Benedetti, Robert Lepage and Anne-Sophie Mutter in a series of personal reflections on their art-form, the nature of live performance, and the unique exchange they experience with an audience every time they take to the stage.
