Kino #34 // The Christmas Edition // Thurs 1st December // @ Vibe Live


Kino’s famous open-mic short film night returns to Vibe Live for a special (early!) Christmas edition this Thursday, 1st December.

For those not familiar with the Kino thing, we don’t watch ANYTHING we screen in advance of the night, so the programme is as much a surprise to us as it is to you! And why? Because we just want filmmakers to take to the stage and speak for themselves.

Kino is more popular than ever at the moment, and we’re getting many more screening requests that we can possibly fit into each night, so be sure to book your slot as soon as you can. Details below…

Alongside the shorts we’ll have popcorn, mince pies (all free of course), Christmas goodies to give away courtesy of BFI Southbank and Prince Charles Cinema, and a return visit from none other than Santa Claus himself!

Get yourself on the ‘I’m attending’ list via our Facebook here.

Doors open at 7:30pm, films start at 8:15pm. £4 on the door, £3 with flyer


Filmmakers register in advance to screen their short at the next event, sight unseen. 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 (34) 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 Laura a line ASAP at She’ll need your name, the title and duration of your film and some contact details.
