Poetry Film Live shows some of the best and most
inspiring film and video poetry from the UK and around the world,
by both new and established poets and poetry filmmakers. It also features interviews and essays.
Poetry film harmonises words, images and sound to create a new poetry experience … it’s more than spoken words, visual images and sound being in the same room together, it’s their ability to talk to one another that creates the magic in poetry film.
The editorial bias is toward poetry films with an emphasis on a convincing
poetic experience rather than simply technical excellence.
We encourage poet-made films or where the filmmaker has worked closely with the poet.
We also encourage work from poets who are new to poetry film.
