It’s A Wonderful Life? Check.
Elf? Saw it twice.
The Great Escape? Not even about Christmas, but yes.
Now that you’ve made yourself sick with classic festive films, mountains of mince pies, and countless flagons of mulled wine, come and start 2015 off with a detox of average lager, fat-free popcorn (if you scrape the toffee flavouring off), and another bunch of concise, easily digestible, and decidedly non-festive short films.
A total open-mic, Kino is the only short film event of its kind in the capital and has been running to packed crowds every month for over 6 years. There’s also plenty of opportunity to get involved in the new filmmaking that Kino initiates every month – everyone can take part (see below).
WANT TO SCREEN AT KINO #70?
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 (70) 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.
