Flatpack celebrates film in all its forms, in venues all over Birmingham. Submissions are now open, and there are 5 coveted awards for the 2015 festival.

The film selected by the jury as the winner of the Short Film Award will receive £1000. All successful submissions will be included in the programme at Flatpack no.9, which runs 19th – 29th March 2015.

Submissions should be:

– films under 25 minutes long;
– completed since January 2013;
– fully cleared, including any music rights.

Flatpack screen 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. If you’d like to submit, please click here to complete the form and you’ll then be redirected to paypal to make the £10 submission payment.

The film can be on a playable DVD or viewable online. If you don’t want to send a DVD please include a viewing link (with a password if required) in the appropriate box on the form, either way you are required to complete the form. The deadline for submissions is 6pm on Monday 22nd December 2014. Flatpack regret they are unable to return submitted DVDs. The full programme will be announced in February 2015 and they will let you know whether you have been successful or not before the programme goes live.

If your film is longer than 25 minutes or is more of an installation piece and you’d like to submit to the festival, please contact submissions@flatpackfestival.org.uk

You can see the previous winners from the last two festivals here: 2014, 2013.
