We are delighted to present a selection of 5 programmes from the Kinoflim International Short Film Festival 15th edition in a special advance two day festival at the Poly Cinema, Falmouth, Cornwall. A chance to get some feedback on our film selections, network with the Festival Director and our South West correspondent George Green, and see a taster of what to expect in Manchester later next month.
We’ll be screening 5 programmes from Kinofilm Festival kicking of on Friday19th, with an evening selection of terrific, thought provoking, UK and International films from our Women In Film section at 7.30pm. We’re kicking off the weekend with these shorts celebrating women in film, covering the pressures of expectation and the tyranny of ageism; the pursuit of nirvana, romance gone sour, and erotic fantasies colliding with tawdry reality; dreams of escape and a better life colliding with ugly reality, in a specially-curated programme of films from women filmmakers from the UK and around the world.

Continuing on Saturday 20th at 11.00am with a Kino Family Friendly Kids Corner Animation programme, with a world-wide selection of class sweet animation. Gather round and tune in for some tales of adventures in the clouds and under the sea; of lost turtles finding their way home, and birds learning to fly in most unusual ways. We’ve got a selection of films from nine countries around the world, chosen especially to entertain family audiences. We’re sure you’ll enjoy them! More Details here
Next on the Saturday rostra will be the return of our LGBT programme to Kino, a selection of films from 3 continents at 2.00pm. There’s young love and sexual experimentation, tourism and flirtation, punk rock, magic, morticians, awkward mornings after and embarrassing maternal interference in our LGBT programme. More details here.
Moving on to late afternoon, fancy some documentaries? Then we have it all here with an international programme of some of the finest Documentaries in this year’s festival at 5.00pm. A programme of documentaries from across 4 continents. Meditations on mortality and family: mourning, memorials, and medical ethics; the need for closure, the desire to move on, and the impossibility sometimes of ever doing so. All this, plus the disruptive effects of a chicken in the home, in this collection of strangely true stories. More details here.
Our final programme on our trip to Cornwall, come see this great selection of UK Shorts all with a comedic slant. We’ve pranksters and romancers, dietary fads and social trends, communication breakdowns and claustrophobic spaces, online etiquette and religious obligation, supermarket romance and a drastic plan to escape a lonely Christmas, in this collection of British shorts with a distinctly comic flavour.
