Mayhem - A Night of Dangerous Glamour and Wicked Indulgence at the Justice & Police Museum

Join Kino Sydney on the evening of Friday 2 May from 6pm at the Justice and Police Museum for Mayhem - a night of dangerous glamour and wicked indulgence.

As darkness falls on the city, travel with us back to the underworld of the 1920s Sydney and be entertained by mysterious illusionists, burlesque dancers, speak-easy musicians and fortune tellers.

Kino Sydney will be helping guests become the Buster Keaton or Greta Garbo of their generation as they make their own short, black-and-white silent films, inspired by the stories of Sydney's underworld in the 20s & 30s - with title cards, prop guns and fake blood galore.

After flexing your filmmaking muscle with us, spend some time in lock-up with a true-crime storyteller, have your mug shot taken in the charge room, design your own tattoo, or learn razor-sharp card tricks.

Bookings are essential. General $75 or Concessions/Members $65. Buy tickets here.

Kino Sydney presents Imogen Bel

Those Kino veterans amongst us may remember the days of live music at our screenings. Kino #80 marks the return of such a tradition with Imogen Bel.

Imogen Bel combines vivid ballads with her own brand of bittersweet nostalgia – the kind of song-craft that leaves you looking off into the middle distance, smiling at half-memories as you hum along. 

Imogen Bel will play for 10 minutes prior to a short intermission at Kino #80 at 107 Projects on Monday 3rd March.

Buy tickets now.

Take the FilmLife Challenge

What stories, images, and characters spring to mind when we say organ donation? Kino Sydney has partnered with FilmLife, a short film festival capturing stories of organ & tissue donation, to challenge the city’s young and energetic filmmakers.

We are calling on all filmmakers touched by the Kino Sydney community, and beyond, to make a short film, 3 minutes or less, that will help young people discover, decide and discuss organ and tissue donation.

The film can be any style or genre, and anyone can participate. This is the perfect opportunity to try something new. All films will screen at the FilmLife Festival in mid-May and be in the running for that festival’s Best Film, Best Interpretation of Theme, and People’s Choice.

The films will then screen again at a very special Kino Sydney on Monday 2nd June.

Don’t know where to start? Find inspiration amongst the previous winners. Be pointed in the right direction at the FilmLife Filmmaker’s Evening on Friday 21st Feb. Pick up skills at FilmLife’s free Filmmaking Workshop over that same weekend. Get advice and borrow equipment by contacting kino@kinosydney.com, and find your team, cast and crew, on the Kino Filmmaker’s Guild.

Entries close on 30 April 2014. Read full guidelines here.
