I believe this is the first Raindance with temperatures in their late twenties. At the same time this is my first Raindance experience.
A brief summary of the first 24 hrs goes like this: so far I’ve seen 5 films. 1 proper arthouse, 1 phenomenal cinematic orgasmic experience, 1 indie with no handrails, 1 big budget studio from Balkans and 1 serious Scandinavian. The reviews will follow shortly.
About the festival: it is my first festival on such a small scale and yet with such massive ambition and programme. Am disappointed that some of the features only get one (ONE!!!!) screening, but on the whole the size of the festival allows for proper ‘mingling’ in the festivalgoers+filmmakers own sauce which is great!
