Birmingham’s Flatpack Festival: exploring the wild frontier of film

Flatpack Festival is back again from 23-27 March showcasing the work of up and coming filmmakers and building its reputation as one of the UK’s most interesting and eclectic film events.

This year’s festival features a vintage mobile cinema, live scores, animations, short indie films and a tribute to Birmingham-born film archivist Iris Barry, one of the first female film critics and curator of film at M.o.M.A.

For a taste of what the festival might hold, check out the great short films on 7 Inch Cinema blog, featuring shorts like this hilarious gem from London collective This Is It.

    I was first attracted to this post as I misread Flatpack, for flapjack. However, once I got over my initial disappointment, I very much enjoyed this quick preview of the festival and the video was very cool.

    Funny you should mention that Tess – we’re doing a feature on flapjacks in the coming weeks!!**

    Cool festival though eh? I think a weekend away to Brum is in my future.

    **May not actually be a feature. I may just eat a lot of flapjacks in the coming weeks…
