The 19th Raindance Film Festival, dedicated to promoting independent film in the UK, will open with the UK premiere of the Sundance award-winning “Another Earth.” The indie sci-drama will lead a lineup of over 80 UK premieres, including more than 30 international premiere from over 25 countries.
“We’re thrilled that ‘Another Earth’ will open this year’s festival,” said Elliot Grove, festival director and founder of Raindance. “It’s an incredible film made by first-‐time filmmakers on a limited budget, and testament to the potential of independent film talent to wow the big studios. For 19 years, Raindance has been showcasing the best in independent film giving audiences the chance to see the world through a different lens.”
The Raindance Film Festival will run from September 28 to October 9 in London. The full lineup will be announced on September 6th. “Another Earth” opens in the UK this December.
