We Like 'Em Short And Sweet

Friday 7th December, 2018

The end of the year is fast approaching, and you know what that means! Well, yes, Christmas, but there’s another special event that’s made us just as merry here at Flatpack.

We haven’t been able to keep our mouths shut about it but, just in case you didn’t know, the submissions for our Short Film Programme are open! Once again, we’re looking for short films of any genre and type - we only ask that it’s actually short (under 20 minutes), has been completed after January 2017, and all rights have been cleared (copyright issues are no fun whatsoever!).

All successful submissions will be featured in the Flatpack 13 programme (30 April - 5 May 2019), as well as being entered for the 6 awards we’ve got up for grabs.

Don’t just rest on your laurel wreaths though, as there’s only ONE more month before the submissions deadline. So make sure you show us your amazing shorts before 11:59 pm, Sunday 20 January 2019! You can find more details on how and what to submit here.

Need a little inspiration? Scroll down to step back through time to some of the shorts we’ve featured in past festivals.
