Hot on the heels of Arts & Science Festival is another of the city’s fantastic festivals – Flatpack Film Festival (13-22 April 2018). Taking over venues and spaces across Birmingham, Flatpack celebrates moving image in all its creative glory. Expect new features, weird and wonderful short films, live audio-visual performances, archive film, family activities, and loads more in between.

To whet your appetite, Flatpack has put together a selection of animated shorts on the theme of Stop Start! which brings together older stop-motion films from previous festivals with a selection of amazing shorts from their up-coming 2018 short film competition. Expect all manner of genres and themes, but look out for The Burden by Swedish animator Niki Lindroth von Bahr in particular – it may possibly be the greatest short film ever made. We’ll leave that up to you to decide…

Presented by Flatpack Film Festival  in partnership with Arts & Science Festival.
