Raindance teams up with Budapest’s Titanic Film Festival

raindance_logoThe Raindance has formed a partnership with the Titanic Film Festival, Hungary’s foremost international film fest. According to the deal Titanic, running from April 7th to the 17th, will program a selection of Raindance’s famous 99-minute film schools, to be organized by Raindance’s Budapest office, and screen a sidebar showcasing the best films from the last Raindance Film Festival.  In turn, Titanic will offer a selection of Hungarian films for next year’s Raindance Film Festival in London, to be held this year from September 28th to October 9th.

In many ways, Titanic embodies much the same philosophy as Raindance. They have been showing the Budapest community for 18 years great films from around the world which they can’t see anywhere else. We’ve been doing the same in London with independent film over the last 19 years” said Elliot Grove, founder of Raindance.

Titanic International Film Festival
Since its maiden voyage in 1993, Budapest’s international film festival has refused to live up to its name and sink: getting year by year bigger in attendance and the number of films and also gaining recognition nationwide as well as internationally. Titanic, under the guidance of festival director György Horváth, made a giant step in 2006 by becoming a competition-based festival with its main prize, the Breaking Waves Award.

The name of the award says a lot about the festival’s philosophy which has not changed since the start: to collect a wide variety of daringly new, original and trend-breaking motion pictures from every possible corner of the world, be it dark comedies, emotionally charged dramas, genre films, or documentaries. Titanic International Film Festival always runs for 10 days at the beginning of April in four cinemas of the Budapest’s significant art cinema circuit.

Raindance is dedicated to fostering and promoting independent film in the UK and around the world. Based in the heart of London, Raindance combines Raindance Film Festival, Training Courses, the prestigious British Independent Film Awards, and Raindance.tv.

Raindance Film Festival
Raindance is the UK’s largest independent film festival. It was founded in 1993 by Elliot Grove and is happening in central London each October. The Festival represents and promotes all aspects of independent cinema, from guerilla style low budget shorts to international indie blockbusters.

Raindance Film Training
Raindance offers evening and weekend training courses in writing, directing and producing. They are designed to take independent filmmakers from first principles to post-production and beyond.  Raindance amumni include, among others, Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes), Christopher Nolan (Batman), Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and Charles Steel (The Last King of Scotland).

British Independent Film Awards
The British Independent Film Awards celebrate excellence and achievement in independently funded Britsh films, honour new talent and promote British films and filmmaking across the world since 1998.
