London Warm Up

With our ninth festival coming up next month (19-29, if you had forgotten…), on Friday 6 March we are heading down to the Hackney Attic in London for one night only, bringing the capital a tantalising free taster of what’s in store for the full festival later in the month in Birmingham. On offer will be a veritable feast of short films, feature-snippets, archive curiosities, and a chance to create your own sticky films with analogue opto-pioneers, Sellotape Cinema and their multiple projectors (they’ll also be bringing mechanical drawing machines, making unusual works of art for you to take away).

Providing the cinematic soundtrack for the night will be Frances Morgan (The Wire). Come for the films, stay for the party, and prepare for Flatpack 9 later in the month. Find out more here.
