Event Information

It's back! MAC is delighted to be teaming up once again with Flatpack Film Festival to present an online series of Colour Box.

After a month's hiatus, Colour Box returns, and this time we're bringing some festive cheer, with a selection of heartwarming, funny, and silly Christmassy short films.

Ordinarily, we'd be slightly hesitant to put on a Christmas event at the first sniff of December, but after the year we've all had, it seems more than reasonable to get cracking with the yuletide glee slightly early than usual. 

This selection of short films features some old classics, and some more recent wintry gems, including London-based animation studio Blue Zoo's Bird and Lynx (featured in the pic above). Fun for all the family.

For December's online event, Flatpack are making the screening available for the entire weekend of 5 - 6 December, whilst keeping a few shorts available to view for the entire month over on the blog. We hope you enjoy what you see, but remember: shorts are for life, not just for Christmas, and we've got some pretty exciting Colour Box plans for the new year - stay tuned!
