7 Inch Cinema unveiled the line-up for the fifth Flatpack film festival a couple of days ago. Taking place 23-27 March in venues across Birmingham, this year Flatpack will feature a cornea-full of audio visual delights, including live scores, a restored ’60s mobile cinema and parties alongside film previews, documentary and animation. View the full programme on the lovely new website, here.
This coming Sunday 6 March, 7 Inch are having a pre-Flatpack warmup at The Hare & Hounds, Kings Heath. As well as previews of what’s to come at the festival, there will be a screening of Wurld, a “slightly Postgate-ish animation filmed (and scored) by Canadian duo Elfin Saddle in their backyard, [which] gives you a potted history of civilisation in a little under half an hour”. It looks amazing.
We’ll be playing a mix of indie, electronica and folk in the interludes. It promises to be a great start to proceedings.
