Flatpack no.9 is done and dusted. A freewheeling celebration of film in venues across Birmingham, it attracted over 9000 people for a week and a half of screenings, live events, interactive exhibitions and assorted tomfoolery.
If you missed it, we regret to inform you that it was great. But don’t beat yourself up about it; we’ll be back in 2016 for what should be an amazing tenth edition. Sign up to our mailing list to get occasional updates on the programme, and as always Flatpack does not just grind to a halt in spring. Upcoming year-round projects include a bit of community archaeology in Balsall Heath, international gigs in Hong Kong and Brooklyn, and a new series of special filmmaker events in partnership with Creative England. Keep an eye on our Projects and Events pages for more info.
For the nostalgically inclined, we’ll be posting image and text roundups of the 2015 festival shortly. In the meantime you can relive the programme through the sections below, or catch up on our short film award-winners.
