Kinodot Experimental Film Festival

Kinodot Experimental Film Festival

Kinodot was launched in 2012 as online minimalist short film festival at kinodot.com. In five years the project has developed into independent international experimental film festival with live screenings in movie theaters and unconventional venues in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Films submitted to Kinodot must match at least one of the four selection criteria:

No Money - films made without a budget; 
No Mumbling - films without dialogue or narration; 
No Music - films without a music score; 
No Montage - films made without editing, i.e. filmed in one shot.

Kinodot was created to support and distribute new experimental films, and to inspire filmmakers to experiment in their own way. We promote freedom of ideas, formalism, simplicity and self-restriction as oppose to the secondary film production and self-censorship of high budget festivals. We believe that a great film can be created with very basic means, without special education or expensive equipment. We also believe that creating and following a strict set of formal rules can have a liberating effect on every artist.

Winning script announced!!!

user
Mr. Bassi has chosen a winning script from the top 10: "Having read all the top ten screenplays I chose 'The Invention' as the winner. All the selected screenplays offered some beautiful moments. They also offered some challenges for a director to sink his/her teeth into. For me, 'The Invention' felt more well-rounded in its approach to storytelling. Though the narrative is dialogue heavy, I feel it has the potential to be leaner and allow for a visual short film. 'Th...
