Independent Filmmaker's Ball

Apr 26 2017 19:30 - Apr 27 2017 02:00

Café de Paris, 3 Coventry St, W1D 6BL London

Raindance rolls out the red carpet in celebration of our 25th anniversary. Join us on an evening of drinks, live swing music, and a fundraising raffle with special guests at the hottest party in town.

Proceeds from the evening will go to the Independent Film Trust - a charity providing access to film training to those without the necessary means.

Taking place at the Café de Paris in the heart of London's West End, the Ball will bring together 600 film industry professionals to raise money for charity, celebrate independent film, and just have a great party.

On the music, flamboyant Natty Bo and the Flames of Rhythm will perform live a show that'll have hands clappin' feet tappin' and swingin' out in style. The event will be attended by celebrities supporting IFT and Raindance, with a complimentary welcome drink, a red carpet and many prizes to win on this friendly and truly special night.

We will be raising money for charity by holding a raffle – last years we've had over £20,000 in prizes from the likes of Ted Baker, Nikon, Rotolight, Total Film, the May Fair Hotel and more.
