Filmonik Melbourne is an inclusive open-screen short film night in the city. Filmmakers can register in advance to secure a spot or show up unannounced with their new film on a USB key ready for an engaged and open audience. Film lovers looking for a fresh, exciting viewing experience will find it at Filmonik Melbourne. Films are creative and raw, filmmakers are social and accessible and booze is flowing. Our monthly events are a great opportunity to find new cast and crew and collaborate on short films. At our 2017 Filmonik Kabaret event more than 20 films have been produced and screened in 2 weekends. You can re- capture and use that creative energy at each Filmonik regular event each month.
We're mixing things up this month and we're having our screening party on a Thursday night. Discover fresh short films from up-and-coming and established filmmakers on a big screen and on a Void sound system. Chat with the film artisans, drink a few pints and party in a laid back bar environment. Expect comedies, horror, drama, visual experimentation, docos, animations, action, and everything in between in equal doses.
Filmonik is about non-commercial, non-competitive short filmmaking.
Filmmakers: It's open-screen; bring on a USB drive your most recent film with a running time of 5 min and under and we'll screen it. Spontaneously submitted short films of any genre and of all filmmaking levels have been creating awesome and balanced screenings for the public for a while now. A quick QA with Iphy the host follows each film. Organize your own premiere with us or run a sneaky pre-premiere of your festival film to get feedback without the hassle of submitting, paying entry fees and waiting. You can read the guidelines here: http://filmonik.com.au/how-to-screen/.
Filmonik is part of the worldwide Kino movement active in more than 70 cities around the world (http://www.planetekino.com/). The Kino movement is celebrating 20 years of filmmaking this month!
