Flatpack Festival
Film for all the senses

Birmingham 68

Pop, protest and play.

A landmark year internationally, 1968 was also a turbulent time for Birmingham. This eye-opening, city-straddling project kicked off in spring 2018 with a programme of events, exhibitions and screenings as part of the 12th Flatpack Film Festival, exploring everything from slum clearance and student protest to Digbeth bikers and Erdington psychedelia. The end result was a series of podcasts which you can listen to below, and a publication called This Way To The Revolution which you can purchase from our shop.

Birmingham 68 was supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
