With the 25th annual Raindance Film Festival quickly approaching, the Raindance team have launched the Official Trailer & Poster for the festival, which will take place in London’s West End from September 20th – October 1st, 2017.
A champion of independent cinema around the world, the Raindance Film Festival is the largest of its kind in Europe. It showcases feature, documentary and short films, music videos, web series and virtual reality experiences.
Directed by Rick Darge, the inspiration behind this year’s trailer has been attributed to the filmmaking process and the deconstruction of cinema – taking a comedic look at the dichotomy between fiction and reality. Darge won the Film of the Festival Award at last year’s Festival for his feature debut, Zen Dog.
Internationally renowned illustrator and filmmaker, Dave McKean (MirrorMask, Luna) illustrated this year’s eclectic poster. McKean is no stranger to Raindance, having previously illustrated six Festival posters between 1997-2002. He also wrote and directed the trailer for the 8th edition of the Festival. The poster was designed by creative design agency What is Bobo, who this year have designed all the materials for the Festival.
The programme for the 25th Raindance Film Festival will be announced HERE on Tuesday 15th August, 2017.
