Listed by Variety as one of the world’s top 50 ‘unmissable film festivals’, Raindance aims to nurture, support and promote independent films and filmmakers from the UK and around the world. Balkan programme had a massive success in the past with movies like; Fuse, No man’s land, Absolute 100, Skyhook, Karaula, Just between us, Halima’s Path, last year’s Monument for Michael Jackson, Barbarians and many many more.
