Filmonik Halloween Mini-Kabaret 2011
Due to circumstances beyond our control it is with deep regret that the organisers of the Filmonik Halloween Mini-Kabaret have taken the decision to cancel the event, planned for the 28th - 30th October 2011. The studio we were planning to use as our Kabaret “film lab” has problems with the power supply. These cannot be resolved in time for the event, and we have been unable to secure a suitable replacement. This coupled with the various other logistical issues of moving venue at this late stage, means that we have had to make a very difficult decision. We always want to provide the best we can for all participants of the Kaberet and we feel this would not be the case if we went ahead with the event as planned. However, we do not like to let people down in this way, and so we are replacing the advertised event with a three-day guerrilla kabaret, leading up to the screening on Sunday 30th at Kraak Gallery. There will be very little kit, beyond that which we can scrounge and pool among ourselves, and no 24-hour lab space - though we’re still working on a meeting place that we can have for at least some of the time. But the talent would still be there, and we’ll be thrown back on our creativity and ability to improvise - which is what Kabaret is really all about. The initial launch night for the Gorilla Halloween Kabaret will be at MadLab on Thursday 27th October at 7pm. It is here we will be announcing the kabaret meeting point. We will not of course be charging to take part in this, beyond price of admission on the Sunday to pay for venue hire. Those of you who registered and paid in advance, please rest assured you will receive a FULL refund of your entry fee shortly. The organising team will now turn their attention to planning the next screening which will take place on December 11th at Joshua Brooks and indeed the next Full Kabaret early next year. We are utterly devastated to be bringing you this news and hope that we can still count on your continued support for future Filmonik events.
