Join a community that believes in the importance of supporting original and bold filmmaking, and recognises its power to shape the world around us.

Raindance Benefactors and Patrons receive the inside track within our global independent film community while supporting Raindance’s year-round efforts to champion and promote independent filmmaking, from Raindance Film Festival, the British Independent Film Awards, and much more.

Celebrate all that Raindance stands for. Join the Benefactor and Patron programme at a level that is meaningful for you.

The generous contributions of Benefactors and Patrons all go directly towards helping us to champion independent film and filmmakers through the annual Raindance Film Festival in London.
