If you were at Kino #48 you’d have witnessed the premier of our new ident, painstakingly created over a few months by Alex Widdowson. Whilst being a cool little short, the ident has always been an important part of each Kino screening as it tries to encompass the collaborative, open nature of what we do at Kino. We’re chuffed that Alex has put so much time into creating this for us!
Kino #60 on 4th March is a special double event! Alongside our regular open-mic short film night we’re also the official hosts for Shooting People‘s Shooters in the Pub event. Shooting People is the UK’s largest independent filmmakers network, and one of the most important players on the indie scene for over a decade. The Shooters networking will happen in the bar area at Electrowerkz for free from 7:30pm. Kino’s open-mic event will happen in the screening room as normal, and during the interval and afterwards we’ll all mix and hang together!
Needless to say, we’re expecting a larger crowd that usual, so if you’re planning to attend the screening be sure to get there early to grab a ticket.
NB. Films will start at 8pm, not 8:15pm.
WANT TO SCREEN AT KINO #60?
As always, 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 present 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 be on DVD
– films must include the Kino logo + screening number (60) at the end, just for our screening
– the filmmaker must present the film in person.
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 email@example.com We’ll need your name, the title and duration of your film, along with your contact details.
WANT TO ACTUALLY MAKE FILMS WITH US?
If you’ve never made a short, are stuck for an idea, or just want to work with new people, the Kino Challenge is a great way to get those filmmaking juices flowing.
