»We want to bridge a gap between the international poetry film world and the UK poetry world. We want poetry film to be mainstream in the poetry life of the UK, not seen as merely an attempt to illustrate poetry, but as poetry in itself – a unique poetry art form.«
A curated selection of short film artworks chosen for their alignment with poetic structures and experiences, and with the visual, verbal and aural languages of poetry in various forms.
Der 1. Weimarer Poetryfilmpreis wird von einem Veranstaltungsprogramm begleitet, an dem Künstler und Wissenschaftler, Kuratoren und Dichter mitwirken.
Poetry films offer creative opportunities for exploring new semiotic modes and for communicating messages and meanings in innovative ways. Poetry films open up new methods of engagement, new audiences, and new means of self-expression, and also provide rich potential for the creation, perception and experience of emotion and meaning.
