Kicking off today and running until October 12, the 16th Raindance Film Festival is gearing up for its biggest year yet.

The movie fest which boasts director Ken Loach as its patron will be hosting 75 features and over 100 shorts, alongside a host of live events, exclusive Q&As and masterclasses.

The big guns book-ending the fortnight long cinematic shindig include the UK premiere of Choke, based on the Chuck Palahniuk novel (screening tonight), and the World premiere of Mark Tonderai’s directorial debut Hush (October 12).

Among the stars and cult icons making an appearance at Raindance will be Anjelica Huston, Faye Dunaway, Michelle Ryan and the legend that is Corey Feldman.

Screenings to keep a eye out for include Richard Ayoade's (aka Dean Lerner from Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace) directorial debut Arctic Monkeys At The Apollo and Beastie Boy Adam Yauch's Gunnin For That #1 Spot, among many others.
