20 Apr Helsinki International Kino Kabaret 2015
Kino Euphoria presents:
HELSINKI INTERNATIONAL KINO KABARET
It’s the 5th anniversary of Kino Euphoria’s International Kabarets!
A Kino Kabaret is a place for motivated filmmakers of all backgrounds to come together and make short films in new and spontaneous international collaborations. It’s a project for making your ideas into films, help others make their films, to learn new skills while working with others. The only limitations we give are the production time and the length of films (max. 7min). The Kabaret is divided in sessions, and they are different lengths. You can choose the amount of sessions you participate in.
It is not a competition. The aim is to show the world what is possible when filmmakers have a freedom to follow their creativity. No waiting around. Do it NOW.
The registration for this Kino Kabaret is closed and the Kabaret is full. The capacity of the Kabaret is 90 participants. Read further for more info.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
In the beginning of each session we all get together and film makers willing to direct come forward to present their idea for a short film to be made during the session. After each director has shared their idea and needs (example “I’d need a cinematographer, an editor and someone who wants to develop the idea with me” or “I’d need 3 actors and a treehouse as filming location”), we divide into working groups. We start making the films by helping each other out, and by the end of the session, we present the films completely fresh and new to the local audiences.
KINOLAB = WORKING SPACE
This year we are collaborating with the youth culture organization Oranssi ry, whose space we will have our Kinolab. It’s located in the groovy ex-industrial site Suvilahti in Helsinki, address Kaasutehtaankatu 1 / 20.
PARTICIPATION FEE AND WHAT YOU GET
The participation fee for the Kabaret is 10 euros per session. You can choose to attend 1-3 sessions. The fee covers using the Kinolab working space, breakfast on project meeting days, occassional dinners as well as having your film screened in Helsinki during the workshop.
FILMMAKING EQUIPMENT AND PROPS
Kino Euphoria has one audio-set you can lend for your film production. All other equipment comes from the participants. Many of us have cameras to shoot with, tripods, laptops for editing, funky costumes, face-paints, musical instruments. Sharing and lending your equipment to others is part of the spirit of a Kino Kabaret.
We will offer all participants coming from outside Helsinki a place to sleep at a local participant’s home. Local participants from Helsinki, let us know while registering how many friendly Kinoites you can host.
We recommend you arrive to Helsinki on Wednesday 1st July.
