After a successful trial run in September, the Auroville Film Festival (AVFF) and MMC/CP are organising another Kino Kabaret in December, as part of the fifth edition of the AVFF.

The Kino Kabaret will begin at 4pm on December 15 and end at 6pm on December 17 (50 hours). The results will be screened at MMC/CP on December 17 as part of the festival.

Participation in the Kino Kabaret is free of charge and open to anyone. Those interested can register by emailing with the subject line ‘Registration for Kino Kabaret’ and with the following information – name, phone number, and the area of interest (direction, camera, editing, sound, acting, etc.). Participants are invited to bring equipment they have.

The Kino movement began in Canada in 1999, where participants would gather once every month to screen short films made using the barest of technical or financial resources. There are over 60 Kino cells operating worldwide, and Kino Auroville is the first of its kind in India. Kino Kabarets are events where invited artists collaborate to create films. The Kino Kabaret in Auroville Is open to just about anyone who dreams of making a film. Filmmakers from other Kino cells will also be invited to participate.
