The organisers of Birmingham’s Flatpack Festival have been snowed under with film submissions for the 2010 programme.
The city’s annual festival celebrating the weird and wonderful fringes of film announced an open call for submissions back in September.
Since then, an overwhelming number of films have been sent in from across the globe, organisers said.
When submissions closed earlier this month, Flatpack Festival recorded a higher number of entries than in any previous year.
Flatpack programme director Ian Francis said: “The response has been phenomenal and gives the festival a feast of possibilities to explore.
“It’s fantastic that there is such a desire among film makers to platform their work in Birmingham,” Mr Francis added.
The 2010 Flatpack programme is the biggest and most ambitious to date, including animation, music documentaries, films for children, live soundtracks and puppets.
The visual adventure takes place from March 23 to 28 in unusual locations across Birmingham, including warehouse spaces, art galleries and a specially-constructed cinema made of cardboard.
