Posted by Chris Pettitt on December 19, 2017

It is undoubtedly one of the highlights in Birmingham’s cultural calendar and we are really excited that the twelfth Flatpack Film Festival is returning in 2018 – taking place between the 13th and 22nd April and spanning multiple venues across the city. The first details of the festival programme will be revealed in the early part of the new year but if you are an aspiring filmmaker, now is the time to get involved.

The Flatpack Short Film Award is now open for submissions and if you’re interested in entering, you have until 11.59pm on Sunday 14th January. Submissions are expected to be under 20 minutes long, to have been completed since January 2016 and are fully cleared, including any music rights. The winner of the Short Film Award will receive £1000, as well as their successful film earning a spot in the Festival programme.
