Have you got a great idea for a movie?

This is it!

Your chance to pitch your movie idea directly to a panel of film industry executives and the toughest critics of all, a Live Audience. These are the people who matter. They decide what will be made. They are the people who will see your film or not.

Improve your pitching skills and get instant feedback. Past Pitches that have gone into production include Meet The Parents (1994), 51st State (1995), Siamese Cop (1996) and White Bhaji (2001). For our Festival Live Ammo! 25 lucky individuals will be selected to take the floor and have two minutes to convince the panellists and audience that their script and idea is great and deserves to be seen.

The panel can, and will, gong you off if they get bored.But they have to give two good reasons why.

The Prizes!

The prizes for the 24th Raindance Festival are bigger than ever.

*Pitch and receive a £25 Raindance voucher
*The top three winning pitches will each receive a £100 Raindance voucher and will gain entry into the 2nd round of the Perfect Pitches competition coming in February 2017 and a chance to participate in a prize pool of £100,000 and for their production to be developed, produced and distributed.

As is tradition the winning pitch on the night will take the total cash in the hat

To pitch, book your ticket, pre-register your pitch and drop a fiver in the hat on arrival.

Raindance
Since 1992 Raindance has been offering advice and support for independent filmmakers. We started the Raindance Film Festival in 1993, and the British Independent Film Awards in 1998.

Most of our year is spent training thousands of new and established filmmakers in all aspects of film. Among high profile alumni are Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins), David Yates (Harry Potter), Guy Ritchie and Matthew Vaughn – who actually met at a Raindance course. Raindance training is one of the world’s largest catering for over 3000 students per year.

In 2011 we launched an innovative Postgraduate Film Degree with Staffordshire University and the Independent Film Trust.

The 24th Raindance Film Festival has now released it's 2016 festival trailer: a homage to Stephen Spielberg who celebrates his 70th birthday this year:

In 2014 we relaunched our production arm, Raw Talent with the feature Deadly Virtues.
