As well as all kinds of live stuff from maverick cellist Hiromichi Sakamoto to archive plunderers People Like Us, Flatpack welcomes a convoy of artists and filmmakers to Birmingham this week. Here are a few to look out for...


David Wilson -  Very talented animator/illustrator, introducing Mind Bombs on Friday then VJing at Paper Party on Saturday.


Tony Garnett -  Born in Birmingham and still devoted to Villa, the man who produced Cathy Come Home and Kes, and much later helped turn TV on its head with This Life and Cops. He'll be talking about his directorial debut Prostitute, shot on the mean streets of Balsall Heath.


Duncan Campbell - Belfast-born artist who featured in this year's British Art Show,talking about his approach to working with archive materials.


Thomas Arslan -  This fascinating director from the 'Berlin School' is at mac to present his new film, taut thriller In The Shadows.


Laura Marcus -  Goldsmiths Professor of English at New College Oxford, and a specialist in modernism who will be talking about our patron saint Iris Barry and her heady days in 20s London.


Plus many many others. It all starts tomorrow. See you soon...
