Image for Raindance

EIFF films make an impression at Raindance Film Festival, with a number of features picking up awards.

Raindance Film Festival, "The Voice of Indie Film", is touted as

a festival founded by filmmakers, for filmmakers. Now in its 18th year, Raindance 2010 took place between between 29 September and 10 October in London.

The Raindance Jury, which includes metal-head Lemmy, British producer Alison Owen, and Mighty Boosh comedian Julian Barrat, announced the winners last Sunday, 10 October. Son of Babylon, which had its Rosebud UK premiere here at Edinburgh International Film Festival clinched Best International Feature. Meanwhile, EIFF picks Huge and Jackboots on Whitehall were nominated for Best UK Feature, but were beaten out by BBC-produced Ipswitch drama Five Daughters.

If you'd like to get involved with Raindance in London, a number of courses are taking place in the coming weeks, including How to Make a Short Film on 30-31 October and 5-week Foundation Certificates in Producing and Documentary beginning in mid-November.
