Spring Kabaret ’09 wants YOU

February 26, 2009

spring_kabaret09_med

Wis-Kino kicks off its 2009 season with the first of THREE 48-hour filmmaking Kabarets!
Back after a short winters’ nap, Madison’s own micro-cinema collaborative is gearing up to throw the first of the years’ three Kabarets, 48-hour challenges that provide opportunities for both amateur and professional filmmakers to flex their creative muscles. A kick-off screening will be held on Friday, March 20th at 7:00p.m. in Sundance Cinema’s North Lounge. It’s an open screening, meaning that anyone can bring any short film to show (see guidelines). At the end of the night, we’ll sign up everyone interested in participating in the Kabaret and then announce some sort of secret ingredient, an element that must be included in your film to prove that it was made over the next two days.

We will then reconvene for the final Kabaret screening on Sunday, March 22 at 7:00p.m. in one of Sundance’s theatres to show all of the films made over the weekend. This is a great chance to both challenge yourself to make a film quickly with minimal resources, and to show your work on the big screen!

Anyone can help make a film, regardless of experience or skills. Just show up at the kick-off screening and make it known that you’re looking to help out! If you’re not a director/camera person, teams are often still looking for actors, musicians, boom mic operators, extras, techies, and more.

The Details:
WHAT: Wis-Kino Spring Kabaret ’09
WHEN: Kick-Off Screening on Friday, March 20 at 7:00p.m. – Final Screening on Sunday, March 22 at 7:00p.m.
WHERE: Sundance Cinemas, Hilldale Mall, 430 N. Midvale Blvd, Madison, WI
COST: Kick-Off Screening is just $2, Final Screening is $5 (for everyone, including filmmakers – no extra charge to participate).
