Filmonik Open Screening...

Micro Kabaret: Friday 10th – Sunday 12th August. Screening: Sunday August 12th, 7.30pm till Late, Kraak Gallery, Stephenson Square, Manchester Filmonik is the North West’s premier “open screening” night for filmmakers, offering a warm welcome and a censure-free public platform to all filmmakers, be they Industry Professionals, self-styled Media Guerrillas, or relative novices still finding their creative voice. Films are not pre-selected, but simply booked in, and screened, sight unseen. Anyone is free to submit. Anyone is welcome to attend. This is a place to try out new ideas, and unlikely creative collaborations, to network and discover like-minded talent. This is your chance to have fun with film and not get arrested for it. For the next screening, we’re planning something special – the “Gorilla Kabaret”! The concept is simple. We will be arranging a “pitching session” at 10.30am on Friday 10th of August at a location to be announced nearer the time. Here introductions will be made, weapons revealed (skills, cameras, computers, lighting, props, ideas etc), and collaborations forged. Participants will then have from the end of the meeting until show time to make a film for Sunday’s screening. Every film must arrive at the screening by 8pm, and must contain the credit “Gorilla Kabaret #4, Filmonik screening #58”. For more information, visit www.filmonik.com or email...

Filmonik KABARET screening...

THE FILMONIK KABARET 2012 PREMIERE SCREENING! Wednesday April 4th  2012, from 7.30, £5 entry to those not screening a film. Filmonik cordially invite you to join us at Kraak Gallery for the first screening of the 2012 Kabaret; a seven-day white knuckle ride of cinematic creation on the streets of Manchester and Salford.   By this point filmmakers will have had three sleepless days of flat-out, pedal-to-the-metal 24/7 filmmaking. Who knows what lunatic moving images will have been conjured up in such a high-pressure environment? The show promises to be by turns silly, shocking, unnerving, outrageous, and never less than freakishly original. Every film will be a premiere, exclusive to the screening, and so cutting-edge-contemporary it’s still hot from the filmmaker’s hard-drive. Come along and see what’s happening.
