FLATPACK LAUNCHES FESTIVAL PROGRAMME FOR 2019


Birmingham’s Flatpack Festival returns this May Day Bank Holiday for its thirteenth edition and boasts a wonderfully eclectic line-up over the 6-day festival with 100 events taking place at 14 different venues across Birmingham.


Running from 30th APRIL – 5th MAY and with everything from car park theatre and cat-shaped bento to Moomins and post-punk legends, this year’s Flatpack will treat audiences to a week of inspiring screenings, exhibitions, live performances, installations and some very special guests.


Flatpack will welcome acclaimed stand-up Stewart Lee and filmmaker Michael Cumming to offer an exclusive taste of their new documentary KING ROCKER, a unique tribute to the Black Country’s unsung post-punk heroes The Nightingales.


Cumming will also screen his film OXIDE GHOSTS sharing his personal insights into the process of making the cult TV series Brass Eye. Other highlights include the world premiere of immersive theatre piece A MOMENT OF MADNESS, in which participants are thrust into the heart of a spy thriller in a car park.



The ever-popular family strand Colour Box will return with a host of animated shorts and free drop-in activities to entertain all the family. Tokyo artist and animator Mari Miyazawa will present her unfeasibly cute BEAUTIFUL BENTO workshops in the UK for the first time - turning traditional Japanese lunch boxes into fun, edible characters. Other Colour Box highlights include the SOUNDPLAY DOME, a unique interactive musical installation for children of all ages to explore, a special preview of Sky TV’s MOOMINVALLEY featuring the vocal talents of Richard Ayoade and Matt Berry, and a series of workshops on animating the canine film characters from Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs.


Flatpack will open in spectacular style at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with the world premiere of Sinestro Home Video’s live rescore of Japanese classic A PAGE OF MADNESS, complete with benshi narration.


This year’s programme of feature films present a wide and varied picture of international cinema including: EIGHTH GRADE the debut feature from YouTube star and comedian Bo Burnham; Peter Strickland’s offbeat horror IN FABRIC which follows the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person with devastating consequences; and SUMMER, an ode to the underground rock scene of pre-perestroika Leningrad featuring an epic soundtrack from David Bowie, T-Rex and Iggy Pop.



The documentary strand will include the UK premiere of NARCISSISTER ORGAN PLAYER a revealing look at the inscrutable performance artist; Werner Herzog’s MEETING GORBACHEV, an engaging and tender portrait of the eighth and final leader of the Soviet Union.


Part cinema and part music gig, Optical Sound offers a fascinating fusion of live performance and audio-visual artistry whilst Flatpack’s creative industries strand Unpacked offers unique insight into the processes of filmmakers and artists. This year’s line-up includes the inaugural DUPLICATE: ARTIST PUBLISHING FAIR showcasing self-publishers from the UK and beyond; WHO FUNDS WHAT? is an informative event for emerging filmmakers to help demystify where the boundaries lie when it comes to film funding.


Flatpack’s acclaimed short film strand celebrates emerging talent, with 21 of the 50 shorts in competition for the jury prize of £1,000 being UK premieres and finally Flatpack has always had a taste for digging into the archives, now reflected in a new strand gathering rare, unseen material and revealing the stories behind it. A day of VIDEO TALES at MAC will showcase rediscoveries from the VHS era, including a peek at pioneering booking agency and record shop Oriental Star forty years after they brought qawwali legend Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to the UK for the first time.


After starting life as a monthly night in a Digbeth pub in 2003, Flatpack’s mobile film empire has grown to include cinema-tents, family film tours, outdoor extravaganzas and archive archaeology - not to mention an annual festival recognised as one of the most distinctive and downright fun in the UK calendar. Flatpack are also lead partners with Nottingham's Broadway Cinema on Film Hub Midlands, a BFI-supported initiative to develop film culture across the region.

Midlands Spotlight - CineQ Queer Film Festival in Birmingham in March


Working with the BFI FAN Film Hub Midlands, Centrala Art Gallery, Midlands Arts Centre and Mockingbird Cinema and Kitchen the CineQ Film Festival runs from the 22nd until the 24th of March covering a range of Queer AF screenings, parties and workshops.


CineQ Queer Film Festival will put the focus on new stories, and QTIPOC (Queer Trans and Intersex People of Colour) perspectives, while introducing ‘New Queer Cinema’ a type of queer cinema often overlooked and showcase some of the best underrepresented LGBTQ film both past and present.


After the film festival, CineQ will specially curate a selection of queer films representative of the LGBTQ community which will tour cinemas, film festivals and film societies in the region in order to grow the appetites of LGBTQ cinema lovers in the Midlands.


CineQ founder Rico Johnson-Sinclair says, “Queer cinema has often been a blind spot in the region’s best independent and multiplex cinemas. Not to say that there isn’t an offer. LOVE, SIMON, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME and GOD’S OWN COUNTRY were notable successes in recent years, but there’s a plethora of films from a variety of perspectives that are being made, but just not shown in cinemas”.


“Often the only places to watch queer films are streaming services, we want to change that by bringing audiences across Birmingham and the Midlands, more opportunities to see these brilliant titles on the big screen”.



CineQ was previously operating as a community cinema supported by Flatpack Projects. They’ve screened many titles such as THE WOUND, CLOSET MONSTER, and CHECK IT as well as short film programmes at Centrala Art Gallery and Cafe, Mockingbird Cinema and Kitchen, and Flatpack Film Festival.


CineQ has also worked with cinemas outside of Birmingham such as Phoenix Cinema in Leicester and was recently awarded a commendation by Cinema for All, Britain’s leading authority for community cinemas and film societies.


Further programme announcements will be made available via social media and the CineQ website from 22nd January 2019.

Telford Stream Railway will provide a fitting location for Kenneth Branagh’s MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS (29 September, 3.00pm), kicking off with a wine-tasting session on board a vintage train before the feature presentation at nearby Horsehay Village Hall.


Fancy dress is absolutely encouraged for BARBARA NICE PRESENTS THE SOUND OF MUSIC (9 October, 7.00pm, Oakengates Theatre @ The Place) when Midlands legend Barbara Nice (aka stand-up comic Janice Connolly) hosts a screening of the Julie Andrews classic, supported by Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival.


The festival will round off with one of the most compelling and entertaining zombie films ever made, DAWN OF THE DEAD (20 October, 8.30pm, Telford Centre) screening in the shopping centre in the dead of night and a Halloween screening of James Cameron’s nail-biting blockbuster ALIENS (31 October, 8.00pm, The Wakes).

Flatpack Film Festival 2018


The 2018 Flatpack Film Festival kicks off on Friday 13th April so get ready to experience over 100 events and screenings across venues across Birmingham.


Running until 22nd April, there are plenty of options for all kinds of cinema fans and we take an overview look at some of the best the festival has to offer over the full 2 weeks of fun.




Colour Box

This is a fabulous film lucky dip with a focus on “doing” as much as on “viewing”. This year’s creative playground includes smartphone projectors, Moomin puppets, VR adventures and a massive zoetrope, while in the screening programme you can find the best new family shorts and features from around the world. Colour Box is suitable for all ages, although even more fun if you’re 11 and under!




Birmingham 68

A landmark year internationally, 1968 was also a turbulent time for Birmingham. This eye-opening, city-straddling programme will take you from Digbeth bikers to Erdington psychedelia, from black masses in Solihull to the lost streets of Balsall Heath. On 13-15 April a host of special guests will join us for a weekend of walks, talks and screenings tapping into a range of subjects that still resonate today. Flatpack welcome a range of guests including writer Dilip Hiro and Oscar-winning cinematographer Chris Menges and there's a very rare chance to see a psychedelic Cilla Black satire set in Ladywood.




Optical Sound

Optical Sound explores the love affair between sound and image through a packed weekend of live events and screenings. Expect AV artistry, music documentaries and ingenious gadgets.




Unpacked

A chance to poke around under the bonnet and explore the creative processes behind some of the work on show at Flatpack. At the heart of Unpacked is a day of talks and demonstrations with a fantastic line up of artists, inventors and filmmakers, while at Film Camp the focus shifts from making to showing. Film Camp is designed to gather together film exhibitors from across the Midlands to share their wealth of experience, and to explore fresh approaches to programming and audience development. The event is open to everyone from multi-screen venues and festivals to community cinema organisers and student film groups.




Special Events

Check out Flatpack’s full complement of theatre, performance, live soundtracks, daft parties and a quiz. Highlights include live animation troupe Paper Cinema and a night at the circus to remember.




Features, Shorts and Documentaries

based at the Electric and the Mockingbird, this year's survey of the best new films from around the world is a fantastic trip. For those who don’t know, Flatpack started life as a film night in a pub and the short films are an end in themselves, overflowing with great ideas and indelible images. In 2018 the competition expands to six programmes and will include a bumper crop of UK premieres. Flatpack’s international documentary selection is by turns playful, provocative and strange.


Short Film Competition Pass

The short film competition is the shining jewel in our crown each year and audiences can pick up a pass wo view Is This Some Kind Of Joke, Little Wonders, Signal To Noise, Artefacts, Memory Lane and Breaking Point for just £32.



To buy tickets and to check out the full programme go to the festival's official website - http://flatpackfestival.org.uk
