25th Raindance Poster and Trailer Announcement - Raindance

The Raindance Film Festival is quickly approaching and to celebrate, it has launched the Official Trailer & Poster for its 25th edition, which will take place in London’s West End from September 20th – October 1st, 2017.

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.
