We’re very excited to announce a special edition of Kino London this month. We’re teaming up with our friends from Oxjam Islington to host our regular night in their awesome Summer Arts Hub. It’s Kino as you know it, but instead of the gritty goth/sex club surroundings of Elecrowerkz, we’ll be housed in a beautiful venue on Upper Street with real floorboards, chairs, and windows! And instead of all the proceeds lining the pockets of the Kino London board of directors in Minsk (oh, those corporate fatcats!), your money will go to the good people of Oxfam to help the fight against global poverty.
We’ll still have your predictably unpredictable selection of short films – and the free popcorn, of course – so come along to the Kino London Oxjam Takeover @ Oxjam Islington Summer Arts Hub on Tuesday 28th July.
Oxjam Islington organise a wide range of music, arts and community events throughout the year. From running their Summer Arts Hub throughout July, to an immersive Indiana Jones screening. It all culminates in their Takeover Festival in October, with 100 Acts over 10 venues! All done by volunteers, raising funds to help Oxfam fight poverty around the world.
Check out their website for a plethora of events. www.oxjamislington.com
WANT TO SCREEN AT THE KINO LONDON OXJAM TAKEOVER?
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll need your name, the title and duration of your film, along with your contact details.
