Filmonik Open Screening #57 – Summertime Special!

Sunday June 10th, 7.30pm till Late, Kraak, 11 Stevenson Square, The Northern Quarter, Manchester M1 1DB, UK, admission £3 (Free for screening filmmakers)

Summer is ycummen in. It’s a time for holidays in the sun, music festivals, morris dancing, pagan sacrifices. And it’s a good time to be making films. The one time of year where the skies might not be overcast, where it might actually be possible to shoot outdoors without it raining, without the aid of artificial illumination to counteract the lack of sunlight. But even if it does rain, there’s no reason not to be filming. Filmonik has a screen all ready and waiting for you.

Filmonik is the North West’s premier “open screening” night for filmmakers, offering a warm welcome and a censure-free public platform to all filmmakers, be they Industry Professionals, self-styled Media Guerrillas, or relative novices still finding their creative voice. Films are not pre-selected, but simply booked in, and screened, sight unseen. Anyone is free to submit. Anyone is welcome to attend. This is a place to try out new ideas, and unlikely creative collaborations, to network and discover like-minded talent. This is your chance to have fun with film and not get arrested for it.

From June, screenings will be taking place at Kraak Gallery in the Northern Quarter. If you’ve something to show, all you need to is contact us and book a slot, or just bring it along on the night. If you’re simply keen to see what’s happening in the world of low budget independent short film, then come on down. It’s a chance to meet likeminded people, network with filmmakers, actors, musicians and other creatives, and above all to see some films.
