I hear all the time about how British films lose money, how independent filmmaking is dead, and that British films aren't half as good as the films made on the continent.
But is that true?
One thing that is certain: I and the entire Raindance Film Festival team will be glued to our seats at this Sunday's British Independent Film Awards. Why? Because we think British film is the toast of the continent right now.
For our filmmaking colleagues who couldn't get into the crammed and squashed event we are pleased to announce that the event is telecast from 7:30pm on Sunday December 8th.
Once the BIFAs are over, we are heading back to work sifting through the tons of submissions already arriving for the 22nd Raindance Film Festival.
