24th July to 3rd August ~ Filmonik HQ, New Art Spaces, Federation House, Federation Street, Manchester, M60 0AF ~ All rounds - £50, single-round - £20

For the first time in a long time, Filmonik will be hosting a 3 ROUND Kabaret! For ten days, the lab at HQ will be available 24/7 as your editing suite, green-screen studio, kit prep & hire venue, lunch-hall, storyboard prep & pitch station, chillout space and more. It’s up to you to lay your hands on whatever and whoever’s available to make short films in time for each public screening:

LAUNCH NIGHT ~ 24th July, 7:00pm
On the 24th of July, we’ll be kicking off the Kabaret with a bang! Head on down for drinks and mingling, and get yourself revved up for the week ahead.

Round 1 ~ July 25th – July 27th 
The first of our three, 3-day rounds. Ease yourself in slowly or hit the ground running and set your bar high!

Round 2 ~ July 28th – July 30th (Silent Movie Round)
A new addition to the Manchester Kabaret. No pre-recorded audio can be played at the screening. Instead, all music or sound effects must be created live!

BREAK ~ July 31st
Take a chance to get away from the Kabaret madness! (The lab will be closed during the day)

Round 3 ~ August 1st – August 3rd 
Leave no leaf unturned, no idea unused and no film unmade. Cap off one of the biggest Kabarets Manchester’s ever seen with a round to end all rounds.

Each round begins with a production meeting. This will be your opportunity to introduce yourself or the film you want to create. Then it’s time to seek assistance from a host of talented actors, filmmakers, musicians and more, including you! Open your ideas to the international community at hand and get ready to create or collaborate.

The final day of each round finishes with a public screening. Present your films live and get a chance to see what everyone else has been up to the past few days.

Our full-length Kabaret gets bigger every year – more attendees from more countries worldwide, more audience members and now, more rounds. Don’t miss out on the biggest Filmonik Kabaret yet! We’ll see you on the 24th…

The Filmonik Open Screening - June 1st


Announcing June's Filmonik Open Screening.

Sunday June 1st ~ Filmonik HQ, New Art Spaces, Federation House, Balloon Street, Manchester, M60 0AF ~ £5 entry donation, free entry for screening films ~ 7.30pm till Late.

Come along and join us at Filmonik HQ for our regular Open Screening film night. Films are picked from a hat, introduced by their creators, then screened for your consideration. None of the films we screen are pre-screened, pre-judged, or booked in formally. Anything can happen - expect the unexpected, but keep your fingers crossed for a rom-com or two.

If you would like to screen a film, head to the "Kino Kabaret & Screenings" page for more information. Your film is your free pass to the screening.

This is a hassle-free film screening event. We want as few obstacles as possible between your film and the projector, but take note of the open-screening rules and be sure to email us in advance and include the open-screening end-slate (available here)

THIS EVENT IS ONLY OPEN TO PEOPLE AGED 18 AND OVER.

For more information, visit www.filmonik.com or email info@filmonik.com.

Filmonik is supported by Castlefield Gallery's New Art Spaces. For more information visit http://www.castlefieldgallery.co.uk/associates/newartspaces/

The Filmonik Easter Mini Kabaret


As sure as eggs is eggs, it’s time for the Filmonik Mini Kabaret.

17th - 20th of April @ Filmonik HQ, 3rd Floor, Federation House, Balloon Street, M60 0AF - £20 (includes food, coffee, etc. + entry to the screening).

Our first official Kabaret of 2014, and our first EVER Kabaret at Filmonik HQ is nearly upon us.

This will be a fully-fledged Kino Kabaret in a slightly condensed package. For four days, the lab at HQ is available as your editing suite, green-screen studio, kit prep & hire venue, lunch-hall, storyboard prep & pitch station, chillout space and more. It’s up to you to lay your hands on whatever and whoever’s available to make short films in time for the public screening on the 20th.

The production meeting on the 17th is your chance to announce the films you want to create. Then it’s time to seek assistance from the raw talent available on hand. The Kabaret is open to all artistic and filmmaking walks of life - actors, directors, sound techs, gaffers, camera ops, musicians, editors, animators and more. All are invited to come and get stuck in and work on as many films as you can handle in time for the public screening on the 20th.

Our previous mini Kabaret harboured some of the best films Filmonik’s ever seen. Now it’s time to rise to that challenge and tap HQ’s potential to facilitate something even better. Green-screens, giant blackboards and equipment will be available on-site. Food will be served daily and beds and sofas can be crashed on. The rest is up to you. Bring kit, bring creativity, but most importantly, bring yourselves to the Easter Mini Kabaret 2014.

Production meeting - 17/04 @ 10am.
Screening - 20/04 @ 7pm.

The official Mini Kabaret End-Slate is available here.

THIS EVENT IS ONLY OPEN TO PEOPLE AGED 18 AND OVER
