They say that restriction can actually aid creative endeavour by removing the paralysis of choice, and by forcing artists to tread new paths. So perhaps it’s a good thing that there’ll be plenty of restrictions on the filmmakers taking part in this month’s Kino Kabaret.
The filmmaking challenge will see participants – working in teams or individually – given the tough task of conceiving and producing their own short films in a short three-day window. Liverpool Small Cinema will be transformed into a round the clock lab space where filmmakers can edit their films, prep for shoots, or just socialise with fellow enthusiasts.
Organisers are hoping to tap into the city’s wealth of creative talent. Actors, musicians, sound recordists, camera operators, digital effects artists and even singers, dancers, and prop makers are all necessary and welcome to participate. As an added incentive, all of the completed films will be screened in a public event at Liverpool Small Cinema on Tuesday 21st February.
Tickets are £15 for the chance to create a film for the Kabaret and reserve your seat at the screening. Alternatively, if you just want to check out the films, it’s just £5 for the screening.
