Europia is a proud Event & Cultural Partner of the 15th edition of Kinofilm Festival. 2018 sees Kinofilm returning with a bumper festival, packed with 45 film screenings, education events, parties and galas.
Sample over 250 short films from around the world in special categories and themed programmes. Whether you are into drama, experimental, animation or just wonderful new ideas and uniques stories from around the world, there will be something for everyone in this 9-day short film extravaganza, with short films from across all continents. Special themed programmes include a focus on Women in Film, Romantic Tales, Crime Film Noir, Sci-fi/fantasy, the dark and light side of animated shorts, plus our special Polish Animation programme O!PLA (films awarded by audiences and juries from across Poland).
Country categories included in our Eurocine section this year are specially curated film programmes focusing on France, Spain, Italy, Slovakia and Poland plus a pan-European programme.
Continuing to grow year by year is our focus on new Iranian Cinema, with short films and an animated feature straight from the new emerging filmmakers from Iran telling some incredible stories.
Not forgetting a range of educational events, from masterclasses to workshops to seminars, with special guests and presenters.
The main venue for the 2018 15th Edition is the recently reopened Nia Cultural and Arts Centre, now known as Niamos Radical Art & Culture Centre (formally a theatre, cinema and BBC Playhouse, African Arts Centre and most recently a church). The venue is now back in the hands of the community, and we are totally excited about presenting the festival there. Additional venues include Instituto Cervantes, Alliance Francaise and the University of Manchester.
Important update: Some screenings were scheduled to take place in Goodstock. Unfortunately, the store has gone into insolvency with immediate effect. Please check our Social Media platforms for updates on the location of certain events.
