“By any standard one of the UK’s most ambitious and creatively programmed festivals” – Sight and Sound

Flatpack recently pulled off its tenth edition, a city-spanning week of cinematic joy that drew over 11,000 admissions. The next festival takes place in April 2017, but in the meantime there is plenty going on thanks to our new Assemble project. Keep an eye out for upcoming events, and the nostalgically inclined can relive the festival here.
