SCROLL DOWN FOR LINE-UP

The 24th Raindance Film Festival has revealed its line-up, with 90 feature films set to be screened in London September 21 – October 2.

This year's jury will be comprised of Stephen Fry (V For Vendetta), Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous), Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake), Jodie Whittaker (Broadchurch), Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies), Jack Davenport (Pirates Of The Caribbean), Nicholas Pinnock (Top Boy) and American artist David Datuna.

They will preside over awards for a competition line-up that features the international premiere of Stephen Elliott's After Adderall, a semi-autobiographical story about the production of the film adaptation of Elliott's memoirs. Receiving its European premiere will be Japanese director Yoshiyuki Kishi's A Double Life, about a young woman who is assigned to follow a stranger.

Among the seven UK premieres playing in competition are Indian drama The Violin Player [pictured] from director Bauddhayan Mukherji, Mirko Pincelli's directorial debut, the Italian-English co-production The Habit Of Beauty, which stars Noel Clark, and Adam Irving's documentary OffThe Rails, about a man with Asperger's syndrome whose love of impersonating New York City public transport drivers has landed him in jail more than 30 times.

This year, the festival will also introduce a strand titled Raindance Lab – Future of Film, which will include an inaugural virtual reality (VR) Arcade. The event will feature 14 VR experiences, including Home – An Immersive Spacewalk Experience and Notes On Blindness: Into Darkness.

Oscar-nominated screenwriter and Guillermo Arriaga will return to the festival for a second consecutive year to deliver a masterclass for aspiring film-makers. Arriaga is known for his collaborations with Alejandro G. Iñárritu, including on Amores Perros, Babel and 21 Grams.

The festival's co-production forum will also return for a second outing, with this year's focus being on the relationship between the UK and Ibero-American film industries. The festival is partnering with Mexico's Guadalajara International Film Festival to deliver an event featuring panels, seminars, workshops and events, all with the aim of increasing investment and co-production opportunities between the two industries. The full industry line-up will be announced early next month.
