The crazy video Haikus and Kubicles are collective short films each with over 20 participants. You probably caught both when they 
premiered during Filmonik #70 and #72 but the films are due to stand on their own and be readily accessible in higher quality than before; 1080p for Kubicles and glorious 4K for the Haikus.

Hi everyone, this is a call-out for the first of two Filmonik collective projects launching this month and to be screened/live streamed at the next Filmonik screening in August.

For the first project we’re looking for actors, actresses, filmmakers, and anyone with an interest in short films to participate by creating a 20 to 60 second segment, shot on any device. It's a concept fit for lockdown and you’ll be required to film in a windowless and doorless corner of your home. Overall it is a science-fiction concept with plenty of space and opportunity to drift in and out of comedy, experimental or any other genre. Add yourself to this group if you want to participate and get a time slot assigned.

Isolation photo challenge: we're looking for new eye models for our April, May and beyond posters in 2020. Send a close up of your eye  at and see your eye get upgraded with some camera lens parts for the event page. Make sure we can see details by using a macro lens or zooming in a lot with your regular zoom lens or just be weird and come up with a new concept.

International Kino Kabaret events are switching to online at the moment. Kino Pop Paname (Paris) have produced 52 films between Mar 25 - 31 while Kino Caen will livestream 50 new shorts made in the last few days at 5am AUS time Sat & Sun. Kino Euphoria Helsinki's Kabaret and screening is this weekend and Kino Montreal made an international call for new films under the theme "Everything is going to be ok" for a livestream on April 17. What if us Melbourne filmmakers united to make and send one film? Something we can do all separately from our homes and then merge into a cohesive film.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your 3 hour call... FILMONIK #68
