Flatpack Festival
Film for all the senses

Short Film Competition: Beneath Your Feet

Thursday 16th May, 2024

The Mockingbird Cinema - Screen 2 | 18:15 - 19:45

We owe a lot to the planet we’re living on. This programme looks at the things we take from the Earth, the things we give back, and what happens when we don’t pay our dues.

From the landscape-razing machines of the California farming Industry (Valley Pride), down to the mystery of why certain species of frog are declining (The Waiting), this programme pays homage to our planet in all its glory.
