Anyone who went to either of the last two Kino screenings will testify: their new venue, Electrowerz, is pretty damn cool. When not hosting the likes of our oh-so-fabulous film night, they make ends meet by showcasing buzzworthy bands like Theme Park, Youth Lagoon, and Braids, and are the venue of choice for hipster weddings. So demand is high, making an early August date difficult to obtain. They thought you’d prefer to spend those days desperately soaking up what’s left of this almighty heatwave anyway, and have …opted to host the fifty-third installment of Kino London slightly later this month, on the 20th August, when they can expect a respectable 18°C – pretty damn cool. Join them for a short film night like no other in London. WANT TO SCREEN AT KINO #53? As always, filmmakers register in advance to screen their short at each 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 (53) 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 them a line ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org They’ll need your name, the title and duration of your film, along with your contact details. WANT TO MAKE FILMS WITH THEM? Alongside the open-mic shorts they initiate a new filmmaking project each month that anyone at all can take part in. This month’s team of challengees are in the process of making ‘Reality without the emotion of love’, the results of which shall be pragmatically screened at Kino #53. If you want to take part in August’s challenge session, it’s easy. Just coming along to their screening on 20th August and volunteer. They’ll co-ordinate the team there and then. After that it’s up to you! They’ll also have an extra-special two-week filmmaking challenge between August and September’s screenings. More details about that on the night. 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.
