Films by Bafta Scotland winning students are among those being shown at a showcase of new talent at a city cinema.
Pirates of the Caribbean star Mackenzie Crook and a former David Bowie collaborator both feature in the work by Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) film and animation students.
The showcase gives graduating students the chance to display their work on the big screen in front of the public.
This evening the work of 10 animation students is being shown at the city's Filmhouse cinema, including that of Bafta Scotland winner Ainslie Henderson. His animation tells the tale of a performer crippled with anxiety and features the voice of Mackenzie Crook.
Also being screened is an animated music video by Anna Ginsburg, which was commissioned by Island Records for the Bombay Bicycle Club's single How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep. She won the best overall Bafta Scotland new talent prize at this year's award.
Jared Taylor, Edinburgh College of Art programme director for Animation, said: "The ECA animation show this year will allow the public the opportunity to view the films of an outstanding group of animators.
"The work on screen is the product of four years developing their skills and refining their ideas here in Edinburgh."
Seven films produced by students will be screened, five of which will feature in the Edinburgh International Film Festival programme. Sara Issac's Bafta Scotland-nominated documentary, Karama Has No Walls, explores Yemen's recent revolution and the violations of human rights that followed.
Another highlight is Magda Dragan's film, Soliloquy, about the life choices of composer Michael Garrett, who in the 1960s and 1970s collaborated with Bowie and Ken Russell and now lives alone on an Edinburgh council estate.
Emma Davie, Edinburgh College of Art programme director for Film, said: "This is a strong year for films from our students, some of which have already been travelling to festivals all over the world and causing a stir. We're especially delighted at the variety of drama and documentaries this year."
