Setting Sun Film Festival

Filmonik Kabaret

The Filmonik Kabaret is a yearly all-you-can-film buffet of spontaneous creativity, where participants collaborate on as many short films as they can, in a shared production space called the Kinolab at Kindred Studios in Yarraville.

The 72-hour jam-session of filmmaking is immediately followed by the premiere screening of the works, part of Setting Sun Film Festival. It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s chaotic, it’s challenging, you meet heaps of new people and get attached on-the-spot to many productions just by hanging out in the hub. It’s not a competition, it’s celebration of film of all scope.

There are no teams set in advance, and no creative restrictions on the films. Writers and directors can improvise all weekend or come to the Friday production meeting with a script ready to go, but the magic will happen with the cast and crew participating and present in the hub. Short films can get written, shot and edited all in and around the hub.

There’s one ticket for directors for a spot in the screening and another ticket for all other participants; cast, crew or any other type of film artisan. Book here.

All tickets include:
– Access to our collaborative space and studio at Kindred Studios from the evening of Friday May 12 to Monday May 15 (opening hours apply).
– Entry to the Monday May 15 short film screening
