Want to volunteer at Kino Kabaret?

Kino Sydney brings you Kino Kabaret a special one-weekend edition on 5th – 7th December at Sydney Film School. Kabaret is the city’s most collaborative filmmaking challenge inviting actors and filmmakers together to produce short films in across 48 hours. Sydney Film School has partnered with Kino Sydney to host the Kino Lab – a workspace for filmmakers across the weekend and the place to find filmmaking advice and borrow professional equipment. The weekend is followed by a screening party on Monday 8th December at 107 Projects.

We are looking volunteers to help manage the Kino Lab and help at the screening. This role would suit those who are interested in gaining volunteering experience in events, want to meet creative people, or are interested in filmmaking. Our event relies on the help of volunteers, so we’re looking for serious applicants who are reliable and cooperative.

Shift times vary between days. Click here to download an application!! Fill out the application and send it back to <kino@kinosydney.com> with the subject titled: Kino Kabaret volunteer.

Film of the Week: STFU by Jxe

As we rush headfirst towards Kino Kabaret in December we’ll be doing a countdown each week by posting a Kabaret film from the Kino archives! This week’s entry is a gorgeous and funny example of what can be easily made in the space of 48 hours from Kino veteran Jxe.

Film of the Week: Ready to Surrender by Maceo Frost

Get “Ready to Surrender” to this stylish and beautifully-shot dance video. Note how the composition/editing are motivated by music and the subjects’ movements and the location and colour scheme adds to the impact of this film.

Making dance videos are a great way to learn about editing, composition and camera work.

So who’s up for shooting a dance film for the next Kino?

Wish Kino Montreal a Happy 15th Birthday

Kino Sydney is part of an international movement that originated in Montreal in 1999. Founded in the spirit to be proactive in making and screening your films, Christian Laurence and his gang started an idea that has spread to all populated continents, rallying young filmmaking communities around the world.

2014 marks the 15th birthday of Kino in Montreal – a cell that has only gone from strength-to-strength.

Kino Sydney wants to take the time to show the original Kino founders how much their idea in 1999 means to us. Join us on Sunday 26th October at 2pm in the Beer Garden at the The Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst to raise a glass to Kino Montreal and to help us shoot a message for their birthday screening.
