Against a backdrop of an industry affected by this global pandemic, Raindance will continue to support and inspire film fans and the broader film community, enabling them to thrive during these difficult times. Britain’s arts and culture organisations have long recognised the need to adapt to survive when faced with the likes of funding cuts or changes in the way audiences engage – and like its compatriots throughout the UK and beyond, it has been necessary for Raindance to dramatically adapt in 2020 to meet the extreme challenges presented by COVID-19.

Raindance views social distancing and self-isolation as a creative challenge to refresh and reinvent the festival experience. Raindance also recognises its role as a necessary platform for UK and international independent filmmakers to connect to UK audiences. With this in mind, the Raindance Film Festival will safely adapt to an online experience for its 28th edition (28 October – 7 November 2020), to run in parallel with a number of live activities, including industry sessions, panels and gigs at various central London venues. The result will be aninnovative hybrid of remote engagement and live activity.

The online content of Raindance will be powered by Shift72, who have delivered world-class online film festivals for the likes of Visions du Réel, SXSW, Cannes Marché Du Film and CPH:DOX.
