The KinofilmManchester European Short Film Festival 2010 is pleased to announcea selection of highlights from a line-up that offers an ambitious, accessibleand wide ranging week of new film and filmmaking events in Manchester, 27 April– 2 May. 


As ever, short films are themain focus of the festival, which showcases a kaleidoscope of new talent. Oversix days Kinofilm 2010 will screen 200 shorts over 30 programmes, selected fromover 1000 submissions from across Europe.


Not to be missed is thehilarious Oscar© nominee:Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beautywith Kathleen O’Rourke, screening in Animation. Atthe oppose end of the genre scale, Kino Extremeexplores edgy, challenging new work including Tom Geens’ award winner You’rethe Stranger Here. Elsewhere, the Love Storiesprogramme explores romance in all its forms, including a wistful breakup for the iPod generation in Modern Life is Rubbish, withrising stars Rafe Spall and Rebecca Night. Another

Oscar© nominated short, Rabbit a la Berlin (2010 Documentary Short) is arare treat and we are very excited to announce a special screening of thisyear’s BAFTA Best Short Film nominees. 


Alongside the impressiveshorts programmes, there are six debut features to look forward to in the“Transitions” strand, from directors who cut their teeth in short film. DavidWhitney’s acclaimed Kandahar Break is adefinite stand out, the topical, tense drama following a mine clearer in late1990s Southern Afghanistan. Horror fans will find their adrenalin pumping withlocal filmmaker Lawrence Gough’s Salvage, inwhich a sleepy cul-de-sac is plunged into fear when a mysterious ship containerwashes

up nearby. Kinofilm will bewelcoming directors featured in the “Transitions” strand to the festival toshare their views on making the jump from short to feature.


Working in collaboration withrenowned practitioners and production houses, Kinofilm is particularly proud toannounce its series of workshops and Masterclasses that complement ourpost-screening discussions and filmmaker Q&As.


Leading cinematographer TristanOliver, who has worked on Academy Award© nominated films suchas Fantastic Mr Fox and ChickenRun, will host an intensive day course, Cinematography inAnimated Film (28 April). Another rare opportunity to gain insightinto the business will be offered by BAFTA winning visual effects company Redvision (Touchingthe Void; Ocean’s Thirteen; The Day AfterTomorrow). The Redvision team will lead professionals throughthe history of visual effects, new techniques and cutting edge technologies in VisualEffects for a 3D Generation (30 April).


In the lead up to the FestivalKinofilm 2010 will also host its first ever art show, ThePolish Film Poster Exhibition. The show runs 16 April – 16May and is based in the unusual premises of the Triangle Shopping Centre,harking back to the Kinofilm tradition of hosting screenings in unexpectedvenues.
