Thunderdance is an annual festival that aims to support independent cinema from around the world and provide a platform for emerging talent to be seen and heard.

Throughout our 5-year tenure, we have hosted 6 Thunderdance events and 2021 marks it's 7th edition. We have had a history of diverse judges with renowned directors, producers, actors and influencers and aim to keep the recognition of talent accessible to all.

UPDATE 20th April 2021:

Further to our announcement on 4th December 2020, we would like to give our followers an update on our relaunch progress! But first, we would like to say congratulations to those selected at Thunderdance last year. Our new website has been fully designed and is now entering the build phase, so you will soon see your work hosted on our new platform, but for now, please find details of the winners and honourable mentions below:


Coronavirus permitting, we will be looking to return to physical events for Thunderdance VII, however this will depend on government guidelines.

Thank you,
Team Thunderdance

    It has an honor to have my film CHOICE selected in 2017. Sadly the film didn't made it to finalists, but the communication went great and the selection seemed very good. Hoping this festival will only get bigger and bigger!
