What we're about
Feel the Pulse of London's Indie Filmmaking Scene. We are a truly open platform for both experienced filmmakers and those finding their feet as storytellers and producers. With regular screenings, classes, and production opportunities, a broad spectrum of new work is constantly being created by our members and we screen these works monthly. Each of our events is a genuine reflection of the current output of London’s filmmakers, established and emerging.
WHAT WE DO:
Short Film Open-Mic Screenings
Kino hosts one of the longest-running short film nights in London. Filmmakers register in advance to screen their short, sight unseen. There are no themes, no pre-selection and no restrictions, other than that films be under 6 minutes and that at least one of the filmmakers attends the event to introduce their film on the night.
We pride ourselves on being approachable in an all-too-often intimidating industry. Each month we host a Kino Social where first-timers and Kino veterans alike can mingle and discuss potential collaborations on upcoming projects.
Classes & Workshops
Regular filmmaking workshops are open to anyone who has an interest in learning more about the craft of short filmmaking - from lighting, cinematography, screenwriting, directing and more. Stay tuned for our 2019 Class Schedule.
Kino London is a partner of the worldwide Kino filmmaking movement, which started in Montreal in 1999. The Kino community is active worldwide, with groups of filmmakers springing up across North America, Europe, Africa, India and Australia. The binding philosophy behind Kino is the belief in making high-quality films with the minimum of resources, regularly, in a supportive environment which fosters experimentation and development.
