For the past 12 days, London's annual Raindance Film Festival has been flying a flaming Union Jack in it's rock and roll approach to the celebration of British Independent cinema.
Last night, ahead of the closing night screening, the organisers annouced the list of winners at the prestigious festival. They are;

FILM OF THE FESTIVAL - THE SLOW GAME
Nice to see love there for Zombie drama Colin, the £45 film that made a splash at Cannes and an office favourite out of director Marc Price.
And so the curtain closes on the Capital's marquee indie film event for another year, with over 10,000 people in attendence and a choice of over 75 features and 125 shorts from 40 countires, the organisers have once again set a benchmark for the support of UK and International filmmaking.
Until next year then.
