It seems this month that you can’t turn on the TV, go to the pub, or visit your nan without some instance of World Cup mania forced upon you, as brands the world over try desperately to cash in on the glory of vague association and short-lived patriotism. Never one to follow the trend, Kino is absolutely committed to commemorating the occasion in no way whatsoever. And so on Monday 7th July, as the World Cup nears an end, we’ll once again open our doors (and then close them up, blocking out all that nasty natural light), and invite short film-makers and film-fanciers to mellow out for an hour and a half of unseen shorts with a no-“Come on England!” guarantee.* And if you do in fact care to watch the football, we’ve courteously decided to hold our screening on a match-less day. How considerate!
*We can’t actually guarantee that any or all of the films won’t feature the words “Come on England!”. We really don’t watch them in advance!
WANT TO SCREEN AT KINO #64?
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 (64) 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.
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.
