The Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) will be held in June for the fifth year in a row, it was announced today.

The 12-day event moved out of the city's hectic August festival season in 2008 to its own stand-alone June slot.

This year's festival attracted some criticism for making a deliberate move away from the high- profile, red-carpet world premieres of previous years and there was some speculation that the event might move back to August for 2012.
