Synopsis:

Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards, an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself - even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach, Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. From SUNSHINE ON LEITH director Dexter Fletche, EDDIE THE EAGLE stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude.

 Please note this film will be accompanied by the short film THE BIRD (dir: Margaret Salmon, UK, 2016, 4mins, cert U) which is screening as part of the Independent Cinema Office Artists Cinema 2016 programme.
