Birmingham's Flatpack Festival to include an Anime Music section.

Popping up in venues across Birmingham from 17-22 May. From comedy, cocktails and chemistry to punk puppet shows and cinema walks - the sixteenth Flatpack Festival has got everything you need to unplug, unwind and let loose.

For anime fans, there are some special treats instore.

The Ichi Anime Show will occur at the Printmakers Arms, 8pm, May 19th.
A selection of vintage anime shorts will be set to music.
The show was originally put on in Coventry in 2021, and a description from the time reads...

"Taking inspiration for his art from far and wide – a melting-pot of punk, reggae and dub, Henri Salvador, tribal music and old scratchy 78s, and with his trusty sampler never far away, ICHI produces something totally idiosyncratic and entirely new... He takes the notion of a one-man band to new limits combining his handmade inventions with steel drums, toys and everyday objects all in the space of one brilliant set. We commissioned ICHI to write and perform new music to a selection of classic Japanese animated short films from the '60s, '70s, and '80s. Featuring some of the finest short anime films by pioneers such as Osamu Tezuka and Keiichi Tanaami, these psychedelic and offbeat films inspired a whole generation of Japanese animators."

On Saturday 21st May, 11 a.m. the MAC Birmingham will be showing a short film collection called Colour Box: Dream Big, including Koji Yamamura's short film Polar Bear's Boredom.
At 2.15 p.m. The Mockingbird Screen will be showing a short film collection called Wired for Sound, including Shunsaku Hayashi's short film After the Dance.
