The Filmonik Kabaret at Kindred Studios is a yearly celebration of filmmaking, where creatives spontaneously produce short films over a 72-hour marathon, culminating in a screening at the Setting Sun Film Festival. It’s a non-competitive, collaborative event that thrives on chaos and creativity, offering participants the chance to dive into various roles and projects. With no pre-set teams or creative boundaries, it embodies the spirit of learning and experimenting in a dynamic, supportive environment.
