paus To Partner With Raindance

Raindance and paus today announce a partnership to bring a selection of independent and award-winning short films and documentaries exclusively curated by Raindance onto paus, for launch of the new streaming service in March.

As the largest independent film festival in the UK, Raindance attracts 10,000+ submissions each year, from which around 200 features and shorts are selected to screen. Raindance is also a qualifying festival for the Oscars®, BAFTA and BIFA. It’s from this world-renowned programme of the best UK and international independent films that the ‘Best of Raindance’ selection will be made. This selection of shorts will feature on paus alongside other award-winning content, with some of the titles to be screened at the paus launch event at London’s Century Club on 17 March.

“At paus we share Raindance’s passion for independent film. Our partnership will enable great stories to be seen, by enabling filmmakers to get their content in front of an audience that embraces and supports them,” said Rishi Kapoor, Founder and CEO of paus. “We don’t believe in barriers – there are no ads on paus, and we don’t ask people to subscribe to enjoy quality film. We have created paus as the platform for filmmakers to flourish.” 



With this, filmmakers can get their content in front of an audience that embraces and supports them. Creators are invited to submit their shorts or docs to paus to share their work with a like-minded community of independent film fans. It’s free and quick to submit, and once films are live on the app, audiences and supporters can show their appreciation by leaving a tip. 

The unique digital tipping feature allows audiences to tip any film or filmmaker they want to support – any amount from 10p to £1000+, at any time. paus is integrated with native digital payment methods, such as Apple Pay, so the process is quick and easy, and gets the tip to the filmmaker with no friction. Unlike other video platforms, the scales are weighed in the creator’s favour as they keep 80% of every single tip.

Elliot Grove, founder of Raindance says: “As a champion of independent film of every shape and size, Raindance always conveys many incredible stories, including the very best from the international short filmmaking community. Thanks to Raindance’s partnership with paus, short filmmakers now have a new platform to share their stories with an even bigger year-round global audience. It’s an opportunity that we at Raindance are excited to be a part of, and we can’t wait to see many amazing short films and documentaries making their debut on paus.”
