As you're now aware, Stage 32 has partnered with the 23rd Annual Raindance Film Festival to bring an impressive lineup of filmmaking talent to London. Over the course of the festival, Stage 32 will be presenting a crowdsourcing panel, a Stage 32 meetup, a cocktail party, a heavily anticipated Stage 32 Short Film program, and I have been selected as a Grand Juror and will be presenting an award at the awards ceremony on October 2nd.

If you are in or around the London area, or will be traveling into London for the Raindance Film Festival, we invite you to join us for what is sure to be a fantastic time.

Details on all the Stage 32 events are below.  I look forward to seeing you there!
