Filming in Edinburgh

Thanks to funding from event partners EventScotland, a film crew from the Czech Republic has recently visited Edinburgh and will be producing promotional videos and footage. 

The crew, headed up by Karel Jonak, also visited the successful Sprint Scotland 2019 event and secured interviews with athletes including Yannick Michiels (BEL) , Oystein Kvaal Osterbo (NOR), Lone Karin Brochmann (NOR) and up-and-coming star Matt Fellbaum (GBR).  Race footage (with a strong Norwegian presence) was taken at the Bo’ness Sprint Race. The City of Edinburgh looked spectacular in the June sunshine, with large crowds out in possible race venues including the Royal Mile and Princes Street Gardens. The Open Races, staged as part of WOC 2024, will give everyone the chance to both compete, spectate, support their teams and to enjoy the many visitor attractions and historic venues.
