Through a different lens

Now in its 19th year, Raindance Film Festival is Europe’s leading Independent Film Festival showcasing feature films, shorts and docs from around the world and specialising in independent films and directorial debuts. The festival has a strong legacy of showing alternative, edgy films.  Since 1993 Raindance Film Festival has uncovered the hottest new filmmakers to hit the cinematic scene.  Raindance-premiered hits include Pulp Fiction, Memento, the Blair Witch Project, Ghost World and Love Exposure.

The full line-up of feature films boasts over 90 UK premieres from 36 countries, including more than 30 international premieres, and a further 137 shorts, cementing Raindance’s position as Europe’s leading independent film festival specialising in edgy and alternative films by first-time filmmakers.

The festival will open with the UK premiere of Another Earth – the critically-acclaimed breakout hit at this year’s Sundance.  Directed by Mike Cahill, the haunting indie sci-fi drama, released by Fox Searchlight, was co-written and stars one-to-watch newcomer Brit Marling alongside William Mapother (Lost).
