VENUE: Flatpack Hub

97 Smallbrook Queensway
Birmingham
B5 4JL

Traditionally the beating heart of the festival, the Flatpack hub has over the years found itself in an old dance studio, various draft warehouses and in 2016 the museum’s palatial Gas Hall. We’re going for something a bit more intimate this year, ideally positioned for many of our Southside venues.Take a walk down Smallbrook Queensway from New St station, past Debenhams and across the bridge, and you’ll see us on the left by the bus stops. Throughout the festival we’ll be dishing out brochures, passes, T-shirts and beverages, and hosting all manner of free talks and screenings.

The hub will be wheelchair accessible via a ramp. Unfortunately there are no disabled toilets available at the hub.

This informal discussion is a chance to peek beneath the bonnet of two films, one hot off the presses and the other still in the works. Christine Franz will give an […]

The Festival of (In)appropriation #9

The annual Festival of (In)appropriation in LA rounds up a selection of the best contemporary shorts which recycle, rework, and re-appropriate existing material. This year’s crop includes a riotous YouTube reaction video mash-up, an exquisite found-footage ready-made, a queer-Asian-American homage to Hollis Frampton, several sublime works of cut-out animation, and a pseudo-documentary (or is it?)
