As it involved quite a lot of things going on at the same time, there was only so much of the festival we could get to ourselves. Thankfully the joys of self-googling mean that we can relive the whole shebang through other people's blogs...

Both Winnie and Kate Spragg wandered around Birmingham on the installation trail;

Owen Lee painted walls and took photos at Floodgate Kino;

Russl got annoyed with the calendar, but enjoyed Curzonora;

Nixon Leung was knocked out by David O'Reilly;

Samantha Moore took her offspring to Paper CInema;

James Yarker took his down to Floodgate St, and loved Rod McLachlan's Paintcan;

Alec Chalmers had a jampacked Friday and Saturday, then decided to knock off on Sunday before his brains and eyes became runny;

Hilmi Ramlan had a mixed Saturday afternoon;

and Meme Cortex got lost in Digbeth after watching Sleep Furiously.
