Kino Kabaret 2018 – The Washup


Friday night pitching, before the chaos of production…

It was mad. It was chaotic. It was bliss. It was Kino Kabaret 2018.

The Kabaret is a staple event in all Kino chapters worldwide. We make and screen short films over a weekend.

If you’re a novice or a professional, there’s no better way to dive into filmmaking than at a Kino Kabaret. From Friday November 9th to Sunday 12th, actors, directors, editors and other creatives and channelled all their energy into producing original pieces of cinema. Despite how much planning goes into an event like this, challenges inevitably conspire to prevent film from being completed. And yes, some didn’t make it over the line. But amidst the chaos, the standard across the whole range of films was exceptional.

Films made at a Kabaret can then be submitted to other festivals or screenings. You own your work, not Kino Sydney. So not all of the films are available online, but here are some that are.

Enjoy 🙂
