Pop-Up Art, Films and Music at Flatpack Fest

‘The Sad and Beautiful World of Sparklehorse’

BANGKOK A renowned film festival from Birmingham is coming to Bangkok for two special evenings.

The Flatpack Film Festival will bring its mix of film, performance, discussion, music and workshops to Silom arts venue Whiteline next week.

Feel free to grab a pencil and make something. On March 8, the venue’s cafe space will host a group of illustrators doing a large-scale drawing inspired by the sounds they hear, from people’s chit-chat to clinking glasses.

Film highlight include a feature-length documentary on American indie rock Sparklehorse’s late singer Mark Linkous, short musical film programs “Lost in Sound” and some of the best shorts film from past editions of the festival.

Expect a variety of music: British musician-photographer Nathan Tromans will sing folk songs inspired from his hometown, Silpakorn University’s Tito Band and film composer Edouard Papazian will perform live. French video artist Gabriel Camelin will provide live visuals along with aural input courtesy sound designer Twist Apichattachapong.

Admission is free both days. See the full schedule here.

The event runs from March 8 and March 9. To reach Whiteline, hop on the BTS, get off at Sala Daeng station and walk for a few minutes to Silom Soi 8.
