If you want to make a movie or write a screenplay there are two routes into the film industry
1. The Industry route
You need to go knocking on the doors of the large film corporations and the publicly funded film organisations here and in Europe. The inhabitants of these ivory tower peer out onto the throng and decide who are the Chosen Few – who are admitted with great fanfare.
2. The Raindance route
We believe that ANYONE can celebrate culture and create art: be it Dance, Music, Painting and in our case film – creating pop culture and you don’t need to go to film school.
Raindance celebrates the art – the films – made outside of the industry corporates. We believe that every single film: short, feature or documentary deserves to be seen. And what is more, these wonderful passionate personal statements could as well have been made by you – truly independent.

Thousands of years ago, a man named Noah got ‘the call’ to build a boat. Everyone thought he was crazy: he had no maritime skills, he’d never done it before and he lived in the mountains miles from the sea.
But he stuck it out and built his boat – The Ark – and the reason I know it worked? We’re all here!
Early last century big corporates got together, raised a sinfully huge pile of money and hired the brightest and best maritime engineers and boat builders and built the biggest, strongest bestest boat ever built in the history of maritime navigation – the Titanic.
I ask you – which boat would you rather be on? Noah’s Ark? Or the Titanic.
