Raindance is dedicated to fostering and promoting independent film around the world.. Raindance Toronto is the film training and networking branch of Britain’s Raindance Film Festival. We work to promote and support independent filmmaking and filmmakers in Canada.. From new and emerging to industry pros, Raindance connects, trains, supports, and promotes visual storytellers through every step of their career. The organization was founded in 1992 by Elliot Grove as a thought experiment: can you make a film with no money, no training and no experience? We aim to support diverse visual storytellers and remove barriers for those who's stories have as yet only been heard on the very fringes of society. Help us to integrate those stories into the mainstream.
