Excited that we are gearing up in our 20th year of short film events in Manchester and following all the filmmaker submissions to this month’s event, we have a interesting fantistic line up films for your enjoyment. Also note that we’ll be announcing the call for entries to this year’s festival is not live on FilmFreeway.
Remember, we are open not only to all filmmakers in the North/North West of England but also we welcome future entries to Kino Shorts from outside the region, but filmmakers must be able to come to the event to represent their film and to participate in Q&A following the screening.
