Wis-Kino Fall 2008 Kabaret!November 17, 2008
The WIS-KINO Fall Kabaret is here! “Do well with nothing; do even better with a little and do it right now!”
Where: Sundance Cinemas, Hilldale Mall, off Midvale & University Ave.
When: The kick-off screening is on Friday, November 21 at 7:00pm in the North Lounge of Sundance. The final Kabaret screening is on Sunday, November 23 at 7:00pm in Sundance’s Theatre #2.
Cost: Kick-off screening = $3. Kabaret screening = $5 for everyone (including film makers – there is no extra fee to participate!)
What: Make a film in mere days (or hours) at a Wis-Kino Kabaret. Kabarets are a Kino tradition, and about twice a year, Wis-kino holds a one: you will have 48 hours in which to complete a film that’s under 5 minutes long and that somehow includes the secret ingredient revealed at the opening night screening.
We meet on the first day and have a regular screening full of new Wis-Kino and Kino International films. Filmmakers are free to submit pieces as they would for a regular screening, but there will also be a curated part of the program. At the end of the screening, we reveal the secret ingredient (a theme or object) that everyone must use in their film, in whatever way they wish. Then the crews get together and we make some plans. Two days later we all reconvene to see what everyone came up with. It’s a fantastic challenge, and it’ll expand your filmic horizons!
Come to help make a film, or just come to watch!
