BRISTOL'S CUBE CINEMA: KIDS KINO PROJECT



Very inspiring initiative from my favourite English city:



In 2010, the Cube Cinema created a mobile cinema for children affected by the Haiti earthquakes - The (HAITI) KIDS KINO PROJECT.
Less than a month after the earthquake volunteers from the Cube travelled to Port Au Prince to project films on buildings and tents. They gave cameras to children to explore their own lives, projecting them back on the big screen to one another and back in the UK.
Sharing the experience of making and watching films, while offering temporary childcare, HKKP became a much needed respite for the children and their parents, a micro-humanitarian, goodwill project providing an opening for escape, community, emotion and social occasion.
Now the KIDS KINO PROJECT will be heading to Nepal.

The NEPAL KIDS KINO PROJECT (NKKP) intends to visit after monsoon, screening to children in rural areas who have been effected by the earthquakes. The ethos is the same - to project to children in camps offering distraction, stories, light and community through cinema.
We are currently gathering advice from the ground, fundraising and readying our cinema programme and travellers.
Patrick McCormick, emergencies communication officer for the UN, says: "The worst thing for children in natural disasters isn't just the damage that they see around them, but also when they sit around with nothing to do. It ramps up anxiety and despair, and that's what does even more damage."
HKKP was funded through children's workshops in the UK, gigs, cakes and T-shirts designed by artists, and we hope to do the same, and more, for our project in Nepal.

We're kicking things off with a launch event at the Cube on Friday 28 August

Come along to find out about how you can get involved in supporting the project, hear about our plans for Nepal, see films shot in Haiti on the previous trips, sample a little of the Nepal Kids Kino film programme and get a little taste of Nepal. Entry is free but you will have opportunity to donate to the project on the night.
