With its emphasis on extremes – extreme storytelling, extreme topics and extreme film-making techniques, the indie film festival Raindance once again elevates the capital’s cinema-going opportunities to gigantic proportions, with a programme that boasts 250 shorts and documentaries, five of which are banned in other countries.

Tomorrow’s opening night, begins with Jackboots in Whitehall – a hilarious version of the Second World War in stop-motion animation. It follows a band of heroic villagers led by Chris (Ewan McGregor), and Daisy (Rosamund Pike) as they rescue Churchill (Timothy Spall) and fight against the Nazi invasion of England to defeat Hitler (Richard E. Grant). Later, US rockers The Airborne Toxic Event kick off proceedings at Cafe de Paris, followed by a set guaranteed to to get you bouncing by beat-maestro Andy Weatherall. The Airborne Toxic Event will also be screening the London premiere of their documentary All I ever wanted during the festival.
