The Filmmaker Sessions

As we are all on lockdown at home, this shouldn’t stop us from watching films together. So Raindance is bringing you The Filmmaker Sessions. Each week, a Raindance film will be made available on our website, and we will host a Q&A or presentation by the filmmakers every Friday on Facebook at 1:30pm UK time. In this film club, you will be able to join us and ask the filmmakers all your questions about independent filmmaking. You will be able to re-watch the Q&A and the film for the following week. Join us for The Filmmaker Sessions.

The Apricot Tree (Q&A Friday 27th March, 1:30pm Live on Facebook)


A bigoted widower fails at maintaining his late wife’s apricot tree. When his attempts are interrupted by a refugee found sleeping in his garden shed, he learns how to find closure.
Selected for BAFTA- and Oscar qualifying festivals such as PöFF Shorts, the Raindance Film Festival and the Norwich Film Festival (Best Student Film Nominee).
