Kino Toronto

Organization Details

Toronto , ON


KINO is a filmmaking movement that drives the production of short films made with the resources at hand, using small crews and produced with low to no budget. Kino functions as an open screen for filmmakers (called Kinoers) from all levels and backgrounds to share their creation in a safe space without any competition or fear of judgment.

Thoughts About Art and Community

The purpose driving Kino is to push and support local filmmakers to make films by connecting them with an audience and a creative community of collaborators. Kino serves as a laboratory where ANYONE & EVERYONE can create and screen a Kino short, without artistic restrictions or a selection process, and where all genres are welcomed.


We offer a safe space where every artist can make a short film without genre restrictions. We are a filmmakers and film lovers community. We have seasonal screening night at The Rivoli and networking events where kinoers can connect to make a film.
