Raindance Canada was established as a bridge/liaison between people considering or desirous of getting into filmmaking and the different film programs offered in Canada. Raindance is dedicated to fostering and promoting independent film in Canada and around the world, and spans the full spectrum of the art, craft and business of independent movies - from guerilla style low or no budget productions to big budget indie blockbusters.

 

Raindance is proud to have helped to establish the careers of over 3,000 worldwide, and have discovered great filmmakers (but not limited to) like Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight currently ranks as the sixth highest worldwide grosser of all time and Inception), Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes), Tom Hooper (King's Speech) and Christian Colson (Slumdog Millionaire multi-Oscar winner) each of whom launched their careers after taking one of our intensive weekend workshops.
