Colmore Business District (CBD) was delighted to bring Film Bug to the commercial heart of Birmingham in March 2012, welcoming independent cinema to the city’s professional quarter.

For the first time, the nationally renowned Flatpack Festival brought its unique and intriguing take on pop-up cinematic experiences into the city centre through a specially created pre-cursory film festival in CBD.

Film Bug took place in the District as part of the five day long Flatpack Festival. A festival within a festival, Film Bug had screenings in a variety of venues in the District including Birmingham Cathedral, Birmingham & Midland Institute as well as cafes, pubs and bars. A selection of short programmes, feature films and live performances were shown during the three day event; the majority of the screenings being free of charge.
