The film: The film at the launch event will be shown after speeches, will last around 20 minutes and will be shown with subtitles. 

Busy: The launch event can be busy. If you need to take some time out, we suggest that you visit the Summerhall courtyard. This is not a private area, but it is outside and may give you a break from the launch busyness.
