A festival of audiovisual creativity
A quick peep at the Flatpack Film Festival programme is enough to understand how more interesting, exciting and important this event is becoming over the years.

In its 8th annual edition already, Flatpack is mixing up other arts as well. This way, we can expect musicians, photographers and artists performing during 11 days of event. It's definitely not just about film and there a lot to track.

Birmingham has perfect walking-distance venues to hold a festival that gathers the best of worldwide independent cinema. Starting next Friday, 20th March, Flatpack presents documentaries, animation and short films many other screenings and audiovisual activities.

Some headline events include:

The Great Flood, Bill Morrison's latest film, an interesting portrait of the devastation provoked by the Mississippi flood in 1927; The Miners' Hymns, another Morrison's film which maps the rise and fall of north-east England mining industry.

The Punk singer, a rare archival footage of the riot grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill/Le Tigre) and Punk Heritage Brum, a special screening documenting Birmingham's subculture.

Flatpack programme also highlights extra events such as Film Bug, in which Colmore Business District is transformed in area of creativity to explore installations, walking tours, short film and cult movies exhibition, and much more.

DVD Bang, an interesting Korean-inspired viewing lounge where it`s possible to book in to watch a film day or night. The concept is just creative.
