The Flatpack Film Festival in Birmingham is open for submissions. As always the programme will celebrate film in all its permutations, from animated curiosities, to weird and wonderful music promos, to celluloid installations, to cerebral video essays, with just about everything in between. The festival takes place in venues all over Birmingham, UK, and runs from 18-24 April 2016.
The short film strand has 5 coveted awards up for grabs:
– the Short Film Award;
– the WTF Award;
– the Audience Award;
– the Colour Box Award;
– the Colour Box Audience Award.
The film selected by the jury as the winner of the Short Film Award will receive £1,000. All successful submissions will be included in the programme at Flatpack no.10.
Submissions should be:
– films under 20 minutes long;
– completed since January 2014;
– fully cleared, including any music rights.
Flatpack screens all types and genres of film but the programme has a slight emphasis towards animation, music, documentary, experimental work, handmade oddities, and that kind of thing
