The 17th edition of the UK’s largest independent film festival - the Raindance Film Festival (September 30 – October 11) – will feature its usual eclectic mix of cutting edge films. This year’s line-up features 75 features and over 150 shorts.

A pair of American indies will bookend the festival with Lynn Shelton’s Humpday opening and Steven Soderbergh’s The Girfriend Experience closing the festival. The homegrown UK strand will feature British filmmaking talent, including the European Premiere of Ben Wheatley’s Down Terrace, the World Premiere of Jamie Thraves’ The Cry Of The Owl, starring Julia Stiles and Paddy Considine, and Stuart Hazeldine’s Exam starring Jimi Mistry, Luke Mably and Colin Salmon. Also featuring will be the remarkable horror film Colin, made by Marc Price for just £45.
