About Colour Box Bingo!

After the triumph of last year's short film bingo, Flatpack is dusting off the bingo balls and bringing them back to the MAC with an exciting new array of short films sourced from across the globe.

Alongside top-notch contemporary family shorts, Colour Box host Sarah Hamilton Baker will be doling out prizes aplenty as she hosts and brings the energy.

The drop-in workshop begins at 10am in Pinsent Mason 1 and the relaxed film screening begins at 11am in the Cinema. Tickets are also available to see the film without the workshop.

A heart-warming Spanish short exploring our complex relationship with nature.


A charming short about a group of animals playing hide and seek in the Savannah.


A Dutch film that might just have your kids reconsidering the impact of screen time (in a positive way!).
