The Raindance Open Day is your opportunity to experience a real taste of our world-renowned evening & weekend film training courses, classes and workshops.
Attending our Open Day will allow you to learn more about the different filmmaking disciplines and crafts through sample lectures and workshops delivered by experienced film professionals over the day. Attendees will leave with an introductory knowledge of the many filmmaking disciplines taught by Raindance.
We have designed the film courses London day for you to explore what we have to offer and immerse yourself in our film training school for the day. Try out as many of the taster sessions as you like, and end the day at our virtual networking where you can talk to tutors and other attendees over a beer or a glass of wine in your living room.
The day will include a range of taster sessions including directing, screenwriting and producing, along with sessions on breaking into the film industry. There will also be a chance to talk to the Raindance Film Festival team and learn about the flexible, practice-focussed MA/MSc in Film offered by Raindance in partnership with Staffordshire University.
The Raindance Film Centre is located on Zoom. Here you will find all the information you will need about stepping into the world of filmmaking, no matter your level and experience.
