London Raindance Line-up Announced

Julian Assange is on the awards panel

Love indie cinema? Live in the London area? Neither of those things but have a diary to fill and a private jet? Well, this year's Raindance Film Festival programme has been announced and it's literally full of films.

There will be features, documentaries and shorts from 50 countries on display between September 25 and October 6, with Richard Jobson's Brit thriller Wayland's Song bringing the scars of the Afghanistan conflict to the Vue Piccadilly screens and Earthbound the closest the festival will come to splicing The Man Who Fell To Earth and Pitch Black into a single Rafe Spall sci-fi.

The Machine with Toby Stephens is another to look out for. The best of the Raindance line-up will be pored over by Jason Flemyng, Beth Gibbons, Sean Brosnan and Julian Assange - presumably at the Ecuadorian embassy - and garlanded at the Raindance Awards on October 5.

Head over to the official Raindance website for all the details.
