Kino Sydney Kabaret 2018


Kino Kabaret is back!!! It’s intense. It’s fun. And it’s the best way to dive into short filmmaking.


What is it?

Whether you are a novice or a professional, there is something for everyone at a Kabaret – to make as many films as possible in 48 hours. It is an annual event undertaken by most Kino chapters worldwide.

When is it?

November 8 – 12. The schedule for Kino Sydney Kabaret 2018 is about allowing those involved to get comfy with each other before diving into the creative maelstrom that will ensue. To that end, the schedule goes like this:

Thursday 8, 6:30pm – Meet & Mingle

Meet up at Yullis Brewery to break the ice over drinks, food and chit chat.

Friday 9, 6:30pm – Pre-Production

Meet at Sun Studios for a tour of the facilities, a pre-production meeting and a speed networking session. Teams will be assembled and studio time allocated for the weekend.

Saturday 10, 8am – Shoot

Shoot. Shoot. Shoot. Maybe edit. Definitely collaborate.

Sunday 11, 8am – Edit

Possibly shoot, but most likely edit. Films must be submitted by 6pm!
