Angelica Huston and Sam Rockwell's new movie CHOKE is set to open the Raindance Film Festival this evening and Angelica Huston will be making a special appearance at galla held in London.

This is the 16th year the festival has run and will celebrate the best films 2008 has to offer. Stars said to be attending the festival include Arctic Monkeys, Corey Feldman and Faye Dunaway. Elliot Grove, the founder of Raindance had this to say: 'Our programme contains more extreme films than seen in customary festivals, Raindance was created to show the films that aren't very likely to pop up at a film festival or cinema screen near you.'

The festival runs from October 1st 2008 through to October 12th.
