Halloween is coming; a time of ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night. A time of murder, mayhem and monsters, of long shadows and dark imaginings. A time to murder and create.
And we're celebrating with the return of the Salford Kabaret. It's been a couple of years since we held an event there, and we kind of miss the place. So this Halloween, we will be back on the streets of Salford, and nobody will be safe from our creative frenzy.
Part creative jam session, part cinematic bootcamp, the Kabaret is four whole days 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 to improvise and workshop characters and gain 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, to collaborate with new people, and network. 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 max!

All film work created during the Mini Kabaret must be screened first at the Mini Kabaret. Should there be insufficient time for it to be screened, due to the number of films, it must screen at the next Filmonik open screening before it can be screened elsewhere.
While filmmakers are encouraged to use the Mini 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 Mini Kabaret are FOR the Mini Kabaret. We will not look kindly upon people who use the event as a means of getting others to use their Mini Kabaret time to work on films that are intended for some other purpose. Films created for the Mini 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 Mini Kabaret are acknowledged.
