International creation laboratories

21st international laboratories of digital creation

At the heart of the festival, more than 200 filmmakers, artists and technicians from around the world come together for a week of crazy creation. Short films made in less than 72 hours, animation, live shootings, muziklab, music videos and much more.
Equipped with the latest equipment by our partners, and surrounded by experienced technicians, professionals and amateurs work side by side in front of your eyes to create more than 60 films in one week.
No selection, no censorship, no competition for these works. The laboratory is based on meeting and mutual aid according to Kino’s philosophy: “Do well with nothing, do better with little, but do it now” to which we allow ourselves to add “… And together.”
