Since 2006 Flatpack has been lighting up Birmingham every spring, with one-of-a-kind events and screenings to be found in spaces across the city. We use a pretty broad definition of film, and although every edition is different there’s a good chance that contents will include live soundtracks, animation, documentary, ground-breaking shorts, virtual reality, weird films for kids, archive gems and plenty more besides.
Flatpack no.11 runs from 4-9 April 2017, and will mainly take place in the city centre and Southside. The festival has been described by impartial observers as “the best week of the year to be in Birmingham”, and who are we to disagree? Peruse the full programme here.
