Kino Dublin

Name: Kino Dublin

Type: Organisation

Status: Ongoing

Kino Dublin is an organisation whose primary function is to facilitate the creation of short films in a very short space of time and have the finished films screened before an audience. These events are called Kino Kabarets.

Kino Dublin is part of the international Kino movement, and has connections with other Kino cells across the world; Montreal, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Munich, Helsinki, Caen, Hamburg, Naples, Bordeaux, St. Petersburg and many more.

I have been the co-ordinator of Kino Dublin since September 2014. I first came to Kino as a participant at the first International Kabaret in 2013. At the time I had been desperately seeking a means of making my first film. I showed up at the first day of the Kino Kabaret with no equipment, cast or crew. By the end of the eight day Kabaret I had two films to my name.

Our events are open to amateurs and professionals alike. What makes Kino different from other 48 hour film challenges is that we base all of our activity around the KinoLab; a space where film-makers are encouraged to hang out during the course of our events and seek help if they need, or spontaneously come up with film ideas.

We have been slowly building a little community of film-makers in the city with our regular events and hope to continue doing so. This year, we held our final session screening for the International Kabaret in Dublin’s Light House cinema.
