Spring Kabaret gets bailed out

March 24, 2009

The Wis-Kino Spring Kabaret ’09 has come and gone, but never fear! If you missed this one, or simply cannot get enough of great, short movie-making, come back and check out our 3 day long Summer Kabaret this July 16 – 19. It’ll be an excellent opportunity to work with more than one crew of people on more than one film, or to spend a little extra time on just one project. We’re also hoping to have an official Kino Lab set up for those people who want a central place to meet and edit, etc. (and if you don’t have your own editing gear).

The Spring Kabaret was a smashing success, though, with a packed house greeting both the kick-off and final screenings of the event! Thanks to everyone who came out just to watch, and especially to those brave souls who made a film in just 48 hours! The following is the list of those shorts screened on Sunday:

Thanks, too, go to the Decider (specifically Scott Gordon) for giving the Kabaret a nice write-up.

Fall Kabaret in the press

November 26, 2008

The Wis-Kino Fall ’08 Kabaret has garnered a bit o’ local press, and we wanted to share the love with everyone (and say thanks to those reporters who took the time to come check us out).

Student paper the Badger Herald has some info and a photo from the event itself, plus interviews with former Wis-Kino directors (and general ne’r-do-wells) Tona Williams, Aaron Yonda, and Matt Sloan.

The Onion’s new Madison events guide, the Decider, has a good recap of the Kabaret plus a couple of the submitted films (which we’ve also linked in the below post).

For more of the press Wis-Kino has gotten over the years, check out our press page.

And don’t forget about our 2008 Retrospective screening, where we’ll show various films that have screened over the past 12 months of Wis-Kino. It’s free, and it’s on Saturday, Jan. 24th at 8:00pm, at the Mercury Lounge on E. Mifflin St., downtown Madison next to the Bartell Theatre.
