A little more Edinburgh: Sir Sean gets shirty, and "Moon" wins big

Following up on my earlier post on the EIFF, Sir Sean Connery made news by going after the BBC for not covering the event. He made his comments after discovering the Beeb had sent hundreds of staffers to cover the Glastonbury Festival.
Of course it sets one wondering about the possibility of more extended coverage of film here which seems even more remote.
On a happier note Duncan Jones who was here for the Minneapolis St Paul International Film Festival won the Michael Powell Award for Best British film for "Moon.". Jones, who had presented the film at the EIFF and then travelled to Moscow for another screening raced back to Scotland to get the award.
