Tate Britain Special event

Kino // Tate // 48

Join Kino London in a filmmaking project inspired by the new chronological walk through of British Art at Tate Britain. Participating filmmakers have just 48 hours to make a film that draws on the rich tapestry of everything that Tate Britain has to offer. The resulting films are then screened as part of the gallery’s House Warming Party on Saturday 23 November 2013.

Whatever your skill set – directing, acting producing, camera, editing – the challenge is open to all. In true Kino style, participants become part of a crew, based on matching people’s complimentary skills. Or, if you have your own team or you work alone, sign up as a one-man band/ film crew.

A production meeting takes place on Saturday 16 November, for participants to explore ideas and make plans for how the following 48 hours will shape up. Participants are given a briefing document which includes a few rules and regulations for filming in the gallery spaces, further info on the Tate’s chronological walk through and some all important tech specs for your films.

Following the production meeting, participants have 48 hours to plan, shoot and edit an original short film (less than 6 minutes, as per Kino rules!) and get it back to us by midday on Monday 18 November.

Hosted by Kino, all films will then be screened at Tate Britain’s free House Warming Party on Saturday 23 November.

NB: all films are viewed in advance for unsuitable content. Tate reserves the right to refuse to screen any film made as part of the Kino // Tate // 48 project.

About Kino

Kino London’s monthly open-mic film night is the only film night of its kind in London. Filmmakers register in advance to screen their short at the next event, sight unseen. There are no themes, no pre-selection and no restrictions, other than their three golden rules.

Despite the edge of the seat atmosphere, Kino London is refreshingly non-competitive. A truly open platform for both experienced filmmakers and those finding their feet as storytellers and producers. As both industry professionals and first-timers bring their shorts to Kino, the bar remains high for all those who screen. And with such a broad spectrum of new work being screened, each event is a genuine reflection of the current output of London’s filmmakers, established and emerging.
