"The most imaginative and eclectically satisfying film festival in the Midlands." Birmingham Wire

“Working with the Flatpack team to deliver the festival was an incredible experience. I was able to see how a small team of hardworking and motivated individuals could bring together a series of films, exhibitions, and workshops to result in a diverse programme that appealed to both cinephiles and the casual viewer. The atmosphere this created brought so many different types of people together, which I think is one of the highest achievements of any arts organisation, and the Flatpack team managed it with a sense of humour and integrity.” Previous employee

We make great things happen by mixing film and other forms, by illuminating place and by bringing people together. We inspire others and help ideas to grow.
