The Independent Filmmaker’s Ball, the fundraising gala for the Independent Film Trust presented by Raindance, will be back in London at the Café de Paris on the night of the 18th April.

This year, Raindance rolls out the red carpet for a Tiki Night Special, inspired by 1960’s rock & roll and surf films. Filmmakers and indie film lovers alike are invited to the Independent Filmmaker’s Ball for an evening of Hawaiian fun, with live music, networking, and a fundraising raffle with special guests at the hottest party in town.

All proceeds from the raffle go to Raindance’s charity arm, the Independent Film Trust, towards a collaborative project called 25×25 to support under-represented from diverse groups and offer opportunities to bring under-represented film artists into the industry.

The Ball promises to be a wild night of music and celebration at the art deco-inspired Cafe de Paris. Party-goers will be swinging to the live big band sound of Natty Bo & The Top Cats, and there will be a charity raffle with top prizes and celebrities in attendance.

Previous Raindance guests include Guy Ritchie, Martin Freeman, Joanna Lumley, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Celia Imrie, Freddie Fox, Johnny McDaid, Jamie Campbell-Bower, Nicholas Pinnock, Paul Franklin and Dakota Blue Richards.

Elliot Grove, founder of Raindance Film Festival, said:

“Come join Raindance to celebrate independent filmmaking. Let your hair down, grab a drink and come boogie with us! After all, it’s all for a great cause.”

Tickets to the Independent Filmmaker’s Ball are £18 on early-bird price, £21 general access, or £16 for Raindance Members. All tickets are available through the Raindance website:


I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
