Summer Kabaret — Filmonik take over spaces around Manchester to present 10 days of experimental moving image, film art, live performances and collaborative filmmaking.

The Kino movement was born in Montreal in the late 1990s and exploded all around the world, giving birth to ‘Cells’ that provide both amateur and professional film makers alike a place to create and screen short films.

Filmonik, Manchester’s own Kino Cell, are well into their summer Kabaret, using spaces all over the city to bring a diverse community of filmmakers, actors, musicians and graphic designers together to make films in a mind-set of spontaneity and collaboration.

The lab space at Filmonik HQ at Federation House will be open 24/7 for people to come along and get involved during the summer Kabaret which runs until Sunday, August 3 and climaxes with a final screening at Gorilla.

Head over to Filmonik to get involved.
