The Independent Filmmakers Ball is back for a swing-era inspired gala! Join us on an evening of 1930’s style live music, networking and a fundraising raffle with special guests at the hottest party in town. Proceeds from the evening will go to the 27th Raindance Film Festival, and in particular to our Emerging Filmmaker’s Day, a day of free events aimed at 18-25 year old young filmmakers.
Taking place at the Café de Paris in the heart of London’s West End, the Ball will bring together 600 film industry professionals to raise money for our festival, celebrate independent film, and just have a great party.
Attendees will receive a complimentary can of Maltsmiths Lager upon arrival.
*VIP Tickets include exclusive access to the Balcony VIP area, plus complimentary drinks.
Tickets can be purchased at the door subject to availability. Book early to avoid disappointment!
The Independent Filmmakers Ball is for over 18’s only.
Live Act by Natty Congeroo & The Flames of Rhythm
On the music, get set to be blown away by DJ, singer and frontman Natty Congeroo & The Flames of Rhythm. A sizzling sextet of killer diller thrillers, mixing red hot swing, jazz, rhythm & blues, this is the live show that’ll have hands clappin’ & feet tappin’!
