Flatpack Festival
Film for all the senses

7 Inch Cinema

Before Flatpack, there was 7 Inch Cinema... In June 2003 we launched a monthly filmnight at a pub in Digbeth. The idea was to mix together local filmmaking, archive oddities and crazy stuff we found on the internet, along with live guests and musical interludes. The festival and everything we've done since grew out of these lovely, eclectic, break-even gigs, and even if the scale may have changed the approach remains very much the same. You can get a feel of the events from Catherine O'Flynn's tenth anniversary tribute, or trawl our gloriously low-resolution archive below...
