Manchester’s Kino will be back on Thursday 5th May at Gullivers on Oldham Street. This month we’ll have our first shorts night since the February Festival and we’re trying up one of out festival venues as a regular event venue. WE are looking for short films now, if you have something you would like to screen to appreciative short film going audience, get it to us now. And note, If you get into this event, it’s likely that you may receive two screenings of your short as we are hoping to recreate the event and show some of the films at our second event later in May at Salford Uni at Media City.

The audience will have the chance to vote for their favourite films of the night in three categories: Best Short, Best Script and Best Actor. The Awards will be announced at the end of the night and framed certificates given (digital laurels will be given via email to add to your site and social media sites).
