We've been invited by the good folk at 7 Inch Cinema to put together a panel event for this year's Flatpack. So Animate Projects will be presenting 'Flipping Heck', featuring top talent Mark Simon Hewis, Stephen Irwin, Thomas Hicks and Suky Best on Friday 13 March.
Seems that the students and alumni of Birmingham City University are already looking to Stephen Irwin's film The Black Dog's Progress for inspiration for their shop window displays.
There's also, a special screening of Lorenzo Fonda’s documentary about Italian street artist Blu, Jim le Fevre will be rocking his Phonographantasmascope (turning record players into zoetropes), plus there'll be children's workshops, early cinema screenings and much, much more. And the special guests this year are David O'Reilly and Guy Sherwin.
Flatpack Festival brings an array of filmic delights to Birmingham from 11 to 15 March 2009.
