Flatpack Festival
Film for all the senses

Flatpack 2021

All Summer Long.

Flatpack 2021 will be quite the different kettle of fish. For four whole months, we’ll be bringing films and events to a screen near you - online, outdoors, and (all fingers crossed) in actual cinemas, and we couldn’t be more excited. Here’s a little on what you can expect from our summer menu...

Flatpack Festival

From 21-31 May, we took to the web with a full-to-bursting programme of the very best filmmaking from around the globe. Remember all the good times over on the blog.

Colour Box @ Home

This summer, we’re officially launching our Colour Box @ Home project - working with artists and designers, we’ll deliver a pack of activities, games and surprises direct to your door - including a limited edition Colour Box zine! More to come on this in the spring…

Flatpack Outdoors

We’ll be lighting up green spaces in communities all around Birmingham as part of our new venture Flatpack Outdoors, putting our twist on the cinema under the stars experience - think music, food and a few extra treats thrown in for good measure.

Time Machine

A series of screenings and discussions will delve into the archives for buried treasure. From the secret history of Birmingham's adventure playgrounds to Indonesian folk horror, Time Machine continues to shed new light on the past.

Flatpack Festival: Autumn Edition

Wrapping up the festivities, we'll be venturing back into cinemas and auditoriums 23-26 September with a long weekend of live scores, AV performances, film screenings, and perhaps most importantly a healthy sprinkling of IRL festival buzz. Check out the full programme.
