Raindance Festival 2021

October 26, 2022 - November 5, 2022

Raindance Festival

The largest independent UK film festival, The Raindance Festival returns to London for its 29th edition in October.

Whereas the BFI London Film Festival is the biggest show in town, Raindance describes itself as the “champion of the underdog”. The 2022 programme will be found here.

Raindance founder, Elliot Grove, says, “We’re bringing the boldest and freshest talent from the world of indie filmmaking to the heart of London.”
