Kino Sydney is the city’s monthly open-mic film night – driven by an inclusive and welcoming community of filmmakers and film lovers.
Once a month, Kino Sydney celebrates local short cinema with an open screening. Kino invites up-and-coming filmmakers to screen their latest short films with about 12 – 15 short films each month. The screenings are a great place to enjoy local films, meet filmmakers and young Sydneysiders, giveaways + food and drinks. All events are are non-competitive, inclusive and accessible.
Kino Sydney also regularly hosts Kabaret. Kino Kabaret is a filmmaking workshop/challenge. We bring filmmakers together to learn new skills, test out professional equipment, make creative contacts, and bounce ideas off each other all while making a short film in 48 hours. Kabaret is open to filmmakers of all talents and skill-levels.
Kino Sydney is part of an international network born in Montréal in 1999. It is now a global movement, with cells in Canada, the US, France, Germany, the UK, South Africa and now Australia.
