The Kabaret is part creative jam session, part cinematic bootcamp: a whole week of flat out, pedal-to-the-metal 24/7 guerrilla filmmaking; a chance for filmmakers, writers, actors, musicians, artists and creatives of all types to come together in a spirit of creative collaboration, to put their inventiveness, ability to improvise and eye for an opportunity to the test, and to have fun with film.Whatever your skill or interest, the Kabaret has something to offer. For Directors, it’s a chance to hook up with actors, writers, cameramen and editors, for cameramen, sound techs and editors, it’s a chance to hone your skills in a high-pressure environment, pair up with directors, and start working as part of a filmmaking team. For writers, it’s a chance to workshop ideas with actors and get that script on screen. For musicians and composers, it’s a chance to try your hand at scoring a film, or performing on camera. For actors, it’s an opportunity get invaluable experience working with different types of directors and an array of varying dramatic roles. For every participant, it’s an opportunity to build up material for your show reels. Taking part in Kabaret films often leads to future projects and work outside of Filmonik. But you only get out of it what you put in – so get involved and push your talents to the limits.Participation in the Kabaret will cost £45 for the whole week. For those who cannot commit to a full week, we have divided the Kabaret into two sections – the first leading up to the midweek screening, the second leading up to the Sunday screening. Participation in a single section / screening will cost £25. This will cover access to kit, food provisions, venues and studio hire, insurance, etc.The Kabaret will be operating out of the “Film Lab”, a communal workspace for use by participants for the duration of the event. Here you will be able to set up editing equipment, rehearse, share ideas, exchange skills, etc.Please note MadLab is not the “Film Lab” space. Once you have purchased tickets a Information Pack will be emailed to you a week prior to the Kabaret launch, with a full breakdown of the Kabaret including useful information on locations and times.The midweek screening will be held at MadLab on Wednesday 24th July from 7.30pm. The final screening will be held at The Deaf Institute on Sunday 28th July from 7.30pm.THIS EVENT IS ONLY OPEN TO PEOPLE AGED 18 AND OVER.Any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

All film work created during the Kabaret must be screened first at the Kabaret. Should there be insufficient time for it to screen a particular screening, due to the number of films, it must screen at either the next Kabaret screening, or the next Filmonik open screening before it can be screened elsewhere.
While filmmakers are encouraged to use the Kabaret to network, form new creative and collaborative partnerships, and develop relationships that they may draw on in their future filmmaking, films made during the Kabaret are FOR the Kabaret. We will not look kindly upon people who use the event as a means of getting others to use their Kabaret time to work on films that are intended for some other purpose. Films created for the Kabaret can certainly subsequently be screened elsewhere, and work created can be incorporated into other projects later. But only if everyone who worked on the film agrees to their work being used in this way, and so long as all are credited and the film’s / section of the film’s origins at the Kabaret are acknowledged.
Filmonik is a crew-based event, open to amateurs and professionals alike. Within the lab, everyone is equal. Collaboration and experimentation and general openness are the goal. We do not condone any behaviour or action that might seem a barrier to entry, or might intimidate or discourage those new to the Kabaret. Prima donna behaviour is frowned upon. Improvisation is encouraged, auditions are not.
