New this week Pick Me Up 2014
Opens: 24/04/2014 Closes: 05/05/2014 Somerset House, London. Pick Me Up celebrates it's fifth year...

Old hands Handsome Frank and Puck are back; look out for Thibaud Herem and Alice Tye in the Pick Me Up Selects Showcase.

Flatpack Film Festival 2014
Opens: 20/03/2014 Closes: 30/03/2014 Various venues, Birmingham

Highlights include: a series dedicated to West Coast experimentalist Henry Hills plus a Q&A with the artist; a screening of rare early shorts from the 1900 Paris Exposition, many in hand-tinted colour; a retrospective for alternative Japanese anime studio Calf and the UK premiere of the brilliant Bill Morrison's new film The Great Flood about the aftermath of the 1927 Mississippi floods.
