UK fest will close with 'Paranoid Park'

Allan Moyle’s “Weirdsville” and Gus Van Sant’s “Paranoid Park” will bookend London’s 15th Raindance film festival, devoted to independent cinema, which runs Sept. 29 to Oct. 7.

Unveiling the lineup on Tuesday, Raindance founder Elliot Grove highlighted pics including the world premiere of Michael Mongillo’s “Being Michael Madsen,” Park Chan-wook’s “I’m a Cyborg But That’s OK,” Alex Holdridge’s “In Search of a Midnight Kiss,” and two U.K. pics — John Carney’s “Once” and Tom Shankland’s “Waz.”

Other events include a Jean-Luc Godard retrospective, chosen by the French helmer, and the launch of Raindance TV, which will make some fest titles available online for free during the fest.

“Tarnation” helmer Jonathan Caouette will be at the London fest making a documentary that also will be screened on closing night.

Previously announced jury includes Iggy Pop, the Clash’s Mick Jones, writer-director Penny Woolcock (“Mischief Night”), helmer Andrea Arnold (“Red Road”), producer Simon Channing Williams (“The Constant Gardener”), producer Sandy Lieberson (“Performance”), Channel 4 controller of film and drama Tessa Ross and cinematographer Brian Tufano.
