“The World through a Different Lens”
The programme boasts over 90 UK premieres from 36 countries, including more than 30 international premieres, 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.
The closing film is ‘slacker romance’ Bonsai – the second film from cult Chilean director Christian Jimenez. Featuring pitch-perfect performances together with superb direction from one of Chile’s rising stars, this will be Bonsai’s UK premiere.
