Win at Raindance tops off Wonderful Weekend

Posted by on Oct 13, 2011 in News | No Comments

Stranger Things had its long-awaited U.K. premiere at the Raindance Film Festival this Friday and a repeat screening on Saturday morning. Both screenings were very well attended. Our two lead actors, Bridget Collins and Adeel Akhtar, joined in the Q&A at the Friday screening. Also present this weekend were supporting actors Victoria Jeffrey and Taran Wiseman.

We were thrilled to share the film with a British audience. The cherry on the cake was that Stranger Things won the top jury prize for Best U.K. Feature!

The jury included actors Dexter Fletcher and Helen McCrory, director Gillies Mackinnon and film critic Wendy Mitchell. This was a fantastic year for Raindance, with a great line-up, exciting panels and attendances up by 62%.
