One of cinemas greatest heroes has never looked or sounded better!
The film that gave the world one of its greatest movie heroes, Indiana Jones, is back and better than ever before at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2017! Relive the magic of the original great adventure - Raiders of the Lost Ark - with John Williams’ epic score performed live to picture by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra!
The year is 1936, and professor of archaeology and “obtainer of rare antiquities” Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is tasked by U.S. Army Intelligence to recover the legendary Ark of the Covenant before it falls into the hands of the Nazis. Indy’s quest takes him to Nepal and Egypt, reuniting him with an old friend (John Rhys-Davies), an old foe (Paul Freeman), and an ex-flame (Karen Allen) who falls somewhere in between. Armed with his hat, whip and wits, our intrepid hero must face formidable enemies – and impossible odds – to save the day and the world.

Ernst van Tiel
During and immediately after his time as a student at the Conservatory of Utrecht studying percussion and piano, Ernst van Tiel conducted various Dutch broadcasting orchestras, including the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and the Metropole Orchestra. Building up a firm musical partnership with these orchestras he subsequently conducted on many of their classical and jazz music recordings. Ernst Van Tiel conducted the Brussels Philharmonic’s recording of the original score for the film The Artist by Ludovic Bource. Winning five Oscars, seven BAFTAs, three Golden Globes and six César awards, with an award from each for Bource’s original composition, the film is now touring internationally with live orchestra accompaniment. Van Tiel is the conductor for each guest orchestra and has conducted performances of The Artist across the world, with orchestras including London Symphony Orchestra (Royal Albert Hall), Rotterdam Philharmonic (De Doelen) and Sydney Symphony Orchestra (Sydney Opera House, Sydney Festival) as well as conducting performances of other ciné-concerts including West Side Story with the Orchestre National de Lyon.
