Kino is a monthly event that has taken place in Sydney since November 2006. Participants make films specifically for Kino then present the work to a sold-out audience. Each film is therefore a world premiere! The event includes music, giveaways, an open bar and organic pizza.

Like an open-mic night for filmmakers, everyone is encouraged to participate and given the means to do so, effectively blurring the boundaries between filmmakers and film watchers. Kino Sydney is a non-competitive, inclusive and accessible series of events that attracts close to 3,000 participants each year.

Kino Loves Object will be a special Kino event held in the Main Gallery at Object. Kino participants will create films up to five minutes around the themes of architecture, design and typography and these films will be projected in the gallery.

Kino Sydney is part of an international network born in Montréal in 1999. It is now a global movement, with cells in Canada, the US, France, Germany, the UK, South Africa and now Australia.

Here are three challenges for you, the filmmakers:

CHALLENGE 1: MINI-DOC PORTRAITS
Create a 3-5 minute video portrait of a favourite local artist, architect or designer (in the form of an interview, a-day-in-the-life, a time-lapse charting the creation of a piece, etc).

CHALLENGE 2: MOTION + DESIGN
Create a video under 5 minutes exploring the intersection between design and moving image (motion graphics, architectural modelling, 3D visualization, animation, light-graphics etc).

CHALLENGE 3: TYPOGRAPHY
Pick one letter in the alphabet (and a corresponding word), then use typography and motion to illustrate that word. The end result will be one crowdsourced film made up of 26 x 10 second segments by 26 different filmmakers.
