After over seven years of monthly screenings, we here on the Kino team need a little bit of rest and recuperation…

We’re taking a break for a few months to gather our thoughts and come back with an even stronger offering. Bear with us. We aren’t gone for good.

Watch this space for updates, or like our Facebook page to stay informed.

We look forward to seeing you in the autumn with a new look Kino and lots more to offer.

Stay shooting!

Lots of love,

The Kino Team x

KINO’S OPEN-MIC SHORT FILM NIGHT (#88) // Wednesday 20th July

We’ve always been a fan of the dvd, but the world has moved on and so must we! Now you can send us your film as a data file in advance of the night. You do need to make sure it’s delivered to us the day before the screening to ensure we have enough time to copy it to the screening computer, if not please bring it with you on a USB stick. We’ll still accept disks if filmmakers want to bring their film to us on DVD, it’s just no longer our only format!

Tickets £4 in advance from Biletto or buy on the door.
Facebook Event


Filmmakers register in advance to screen their short at each event, sight unseen. We don’t watch ANYTHING in advance, we simply ask that you book your film in with us beforehand and introduce it yourself on the night. There are no themes, no pre-selection and no restrictions, other than:

– films must be under 6 minutes
– films must include the Kino logo + screening number at the end
– the filmmaker must present the film in person

As always, screening slots are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’d like to screen your short drop us a line ASAP at

We’ll need your name, the title and duration of your film, along with your contact details.
