19th Raindance Film Festival winners announced

Mumbai: British Indie Stranger Things (Best UK Feature), Croatian/Serbian/Slovenian co-production Just Between Us (Best International Feature), Bulgaria’s Tilt (Best Debut Feature) and Italian short Reset (Film of the Festival) were among the winners at this year’s Raindance Film Festival Awards. The jury which included Dexter Fletcher, Gillies Mackinnon, and Alex Zane selected winners in the eight awards categories.
“There were some outstanding films across the whole line-up so selecting winners was especially difficult this year,” said Festival Director Elliot Grove. “From the heart of London’s West End we’ve screened over 200 features and shorts at the Apollo Cinema, Piccadilly. Attendance was up by 62% on last year proving that the appetite for independent film is thriving.”
The winners were announced on 08 October at the venue. The 19th Raindance Film Festival, which started on 28 September and wrapped on 09 October, brought 94 UK feature film premieres and 137 shorts to London, cementing Raindance’s position as Europe’s leading independent film festival.    
The other winners were How To Start A Revolution (Best Documentary), the UK’s Monk3ys (Best Micro-budget Feature), Denmark’s Words (Best International Short), and Love At First Sight (Best UK Short).  The winning team behind Reset (Film of the Festival) will be offered the chance to film next year’s Raindance Film Festival trailer, with the support of the Independent Film Trust.
