Can't wait. So much looking forward to watching some brilliant films.
Fantastic film festival. Just returned from being there for 4 days. Superb programming and some of the most interesting, moving and funniest shorts i've ever seen.
All the hard work over many years and ups and downs have paid off. Kino is one of the best in the world.
Manchester and the North West's original and leading Short Film Festival .
I stumbled upon information about the KinoFilm festival by accident, but I feel privleged to have done so, then begging for an invite for the launch last Thursday at the Instituto Cervantes.2010 is Manchester's 11th KinoFilm European Short Film Festival, being MIA after failing to secure funding for three years. Now its back and with the support from North West Vision and Media, AMC Cinemas, Alliance Francais, Instituto Cervantes, Goethe Institut and Societa Dante Alghieri and the Consulte General of the Republic of Poland in Manchester amongst others. Over six days, its back to allow Manchester to enjoy 200 shorts over 30 programmes in 6 days. It's a jam packed programme but there's a lot of new talent to showcase selected from over 1000 submissions from all over Europe.From the 27th April-2nd May 2010 keep your eyes opened for a range of Spanish, French, German, Hungarian, Scandanavian and Polish shorts to be screened in mainly the AMC cinema and the Cervantes.The launch was attended by many a older audience I must admit. What happened to the up and coming film makers of the future, this is their event to take inspiration from I thought. The festival director, John, seemed so passionate about this year's festival, as he spoke about the hard work and efforts that have gone into this year's festival after the three year hiatus. A drinks reception began and followed the works on show. The works in the launch included a mixture of funny, tragic, moving and real thinkers. There did appear to lack a little organisation, with a few mistakes on the festival information sheets and a little muddling on the speeches. But hands down to the thought and effort put into this initiative. They clearly are passionate about the festival and are experiencing a few glitches to be expected with a project this size. There's still a few more weeks to get it all rolling, but I hope to see more of this in the press and lots of film fanatics down the AMC and Cervantes. I certainly will be. More...
