Flatpack Festival
Film for all the senses

Autumn Edition in Pictures

Tuesday 5th October, 2021

We're a couple of weeks on from our first ever autumn edition - and we're still basking in the afterglow...

We delivered our fifteenth festival in two parts - in May we took to the web with 11 days of virtual gatherings and brilliant films (re-live the online festival here), and this autumn we finally made our way back to venues and cinemas. And we have to say, it felt wonderful to be back!

We kicked off with a sold out evening of mindblowing performances at Centrala...

Tarik Barri and Lea Fabrikant’s latest collaboration ‘Zo live’

Paul Prudence performing Cyclotone

Zach Walker exploring cymatics

“Nostalgic and emotional to be back in an old haunt, with good friends, seeing interesting stuff.” - audience member, Optical Sound

...and then made our way to Martineau Gardens for a really special evening of film, food and performances...

Follow the lights to the film

...we spent a couple of days at Midlands Arts Centre taking in otherworldly animation, sublime sountracks and brilliant short films...

Our latest collaboration with experimental music promoters Fizzle, featuring (Charlotte Keeffe (trumpet), Piera Onacko (keys), Max Tomlinson (electronics / drums) & Tom Poutney (guitar)

...and we topped it all off with a truly special evening with the world premiere of jazz musician and composer Xhosa Cole's first live feature film score.

“Stimulating. Moving. Thoroughly entertaining!” - audience member, Sidewalk Stories

An enormous thank you to all the artists, organisations, and people who helped make it happen. And thanks so much to everyone who came.
