With a heavy heart we are sorry to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Flatpack Festival.
Along with the rest of the world, we are having to adjust to a transformed reality - one where our stated aim of 'bringing people together' is no longer a force for good, but potentially harmful. In these circumstances it would be reckless to proceed with the festival as planned. Please read our full statement here, we look forward to gathering again when we have navigated this crisis.
We're moving online...
While the festival cannot take place in its usual format, we invite you to join us for our very first virtual festival. Flatpack 2020: The Home Entertainment edition takes place 1-17 May 2020, right here on our website. We'll be bringing our acclaimed, BAFTA-qualifying short film competition straight to your living room, along with a selection of kids films and workshops in our family programme Colour Box, and an assortment of behind-the-scenes bonus features, one-off live events and digital gatherings.
