Festival programme number two is from Raindance, London’s premier indie film festival that has been going strong for twenty-one years. This year, Raindance is scheduled to run from September 24 until October 5, 2014 and will screen some 100 feature films and over 150 shorts, host Q&A’s, run workshops – you name it. The festival has long since been a good place for Asian film lovers as a Japanese strand has been part of the programme for many years now and this year includes several feature films as well as a “New Directions in Japanese Cinema” sub-strand for shorts. A few other Asian offerings can usually be found too.
