Gritty European crime flickWhen it comes to film festivals, Cannes and Sundance are just so…mainstream. Raindance, on the other hand, isn't afraid to look underground. The film festival, now in its 23rd year, has a strong legacy of celebrating and supporting independent, new and alternative filmmakers. Raindance-premiered hits include Memento, Old Boy and The Blair Witch Project amongst others.
With over 100 feature films and over 150 short films to be screened in this year's run, we should be expecting more of the same.
For this one, join Raindance to see the UK premiere of Amsterdam Express. The perfect introduction to contemporary Albanian cinema, this film is beginning to turn heads worldwide. Bekim is facing difficulties constructing his home. With the aim of raising money he heads to Amsterdam and becomes involved in the criminal underworld. Beautifully shot, with believable characters and praiseworthy performances this is a film that will stay with you longer after it has finished.
