Raindance returns in 2012 for its 20th edition, with an ever-growing international reputation. It opens with the world premiere of disturbing Mexican film Here Comes The Devil, about a couple whose missing children return to them with something unfathomable wrong, and closes with Paraguayan thriller 7 Crates. In between, British films Confine, City Slicker and Love Tomorrow will get their world premieres alongside a host of further treats from the UK and around the world. There'll also be a chance to meet Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk as he introduces Romance, one of the great short films in this year's line-up.

The festival runs from September 26 to October 7.
