Kino #21 :: TONIGHT! :: Thursday, 30th September @ Vibe Live

Our next open-mic screening happens on Thursday 30th September, at Vibe Live, Brick Lane. Oh, and it’ll be our 21st birthday! 21 whole screenings since we kicked-off in January 2009

As always, there are no themes and no pre-selection of the films we show. We ask only that films be under 6 minutes, on dvd, and include the Kino London logo (just for our screening). Oh, and we also stipulate that the filmmaker should be there on the night, of course, to stand up and say “Hi, I made this!”

If you feel like you can’t meet those rules – you perhaps can’t put the logo on in time – but want to screen anyway, let us know. We’re completely open to a bit of arm-twisting, because we don’t want to be turning away people who want to show their short.

If you’d like to screen at Kino #21 drop Laura a line at She’ll need your name, the title and duration of your film and some contact details. The Kino logos are available to download here.

And, if you want to chat about Kino before deciding to screen – as people often do – Laura’s the person who can help you out there too.


We’re hugely excited to announce that our guest filmmaker for Kino #21 is (drum roll please…) Joe Tunmer!

Joe comes to Kino with a stack of award-winning shorts under his belt and a whole host of music videos to boot. He’ll be screening his latest, Conversation Piece, commissioned by the BBC Film Network. Check out the trailer.

Joe, originally a musician, has spent much of his filmmaking career to date exploring the relationship between music and film, and we can’t wait to hear more about where this has taken him. Naturally, Joe’ll be happy to answer your questions about film, music and whatever takes your fancy.
