Ah, Valentine’s Day! A time of year hated by couples and singles alike. The singles resent there being a special day to underline the fact that nobody likes them; the couples feel like they should do something to celebrate their relationship but don’t really know what. This February, Filmonik offers an alternative to getting drunk on your own, or quarrelling with a loved one. Why not join us for a special screening in celebration of the most romantic of saints? Better yet, why not make a film? This is an ideal opportunity to pick up a camera and make a statement about love, romance, relationships - or bloody gangland massacres!
Filmonik offers a censure-free public platform to all filmmakers, be they Industry Professionals, self-styled Media Guerrillas, or relative novices still finding their creative voice. Films are not pre-selected, but simply booked in, and screened, sight unseen. Anyone is free to submit. Anyone is welcome to attend. This is a place to try out new ideas, and unlikely creative collaborations, to network and discover like-minded talent. This is your chance to have fun with film and not get arrested for it.
If you want to be a part of our next event, let us know. If you have work to screen, we want to hear about it. If you’ve a film you want to make, start making it. If you’ve something to show, all you need to is contact us and book a slot. If you’re simply keen to see what’s happening in the world of low budget independent short film, then come on down. We’re not asking for hearts and flowers. We don’t want chocolates and sentimental cards. We just want your films! Join us for what may turn out to be a specially themed "Romance and Relationships" screening. Or maybe it won’t - the onus is on you the filmmakers!
