Treat your ears to Kino-radio

“Do well with nothing, do better with little, but do it now.” That’s the motto of the Kino movement, which encourages people to create independent films with little or no budget in a very short time. Inspired by this concept, the Transistor Festival introduces Kino-radio! Five teams will produce a radio show on a theme assigned just 48 hours earlier. Hear the results during this lively and festive evening!
