Kinofilm is pleased to announce the next event in our autumn season of KINO SHORTS Northwest Short Film showcase and networking event, taking place WED 25th October. We will once again be back at our favourite venue, Mini Cine located at Ducie Street Warehouse.
Kino Shorts is a programme of new short films from mainly local and North West filmmakers. The event will take place in two sections each followed by Q&A’s with the directors of the films featured in each section. There will be allocated times for networking and drinks at the bar during the intermission and after the show and will be the perfect opportunity to meet with the filmmakers directly to discuss the films and explore opportunities for future collaborations. A limited number of tickets are now available. Purchase soon to guarantee your place.
This month’s Q & A sessions will be hosted by Jason Wingard, director/producer/writer and TV Film Production at ITV whose award winning productions have often screened at KINOFILM FESTIVAL. Jason is also a very kino patron of Kinofilm and we are pleased to have him back to host this month’s Q&A.
