Swipeside - Animation events and exhibition

Flatpack Film Festival is rapidly approaching for its ninth edition, taking over various spaces and venues all over Birmingham. Flatpack's newest strand Swipeside sees the festival collaborate with Birmingham City University for an animation focussed few days.

Based in the city centre, The Parkside Gallery will be host to an exciting and interactive exhibition, focussing on animation. This will include exclusive screenings, workshops by animation experts, networking sessions and discussions with filmmakers.

The Parkside Atrium will be home specifically to Amusement Park, which features contraptions and surprises for audience experimentation. During the opening night on 24 March, visitors will be be able to see an exclusive one-off screening of 'Elemental', a projection mapping production by Visual Communication student William Marler, featuring Conservatoire student Ben Weatherill on the accompanying soundtrack.

Visitors will have the unique opportunity to create their own short film soundtrack, have a go at producing visuals and even work with puppets in this creative, citywide festival.

Tickets for selected events and Flatpack passes are onsale now at www.flatpackfestival.org.uk
