Flatpack Film Festival

Flatpack takes over venues across Birmingham every spring with a packed, colourful menu of events, screenings, exhibitions and installations.

The festival grew out of the legendary 7 Inch Cinema mixed-media nights at the Rainbow in Digbeth, and while it has grown rapidly over the decade since it remains committed to the same things: using venues imaginatively, creating a sense of occasion, and exploring the full spectrum of film – particularly in the areas where the moving image bumps into other artforms.

Described by Time Out as “magnificently eclectic”, the festival’s informal atmosphere draws people from across the UK.
