A new touring programme of shorts from around the world curated by Marie Craven launches today. Poetry + Video is an hour-long collection of films which surveys diverse contemporary expressions of poetry in video. A wide range of approaches includes: screen adaptations of page poetry, prose poetry, animations, poetry from found text and media, poetic cinema, text-on-screen, and spoken word.
I'm very pleased to say that it includes my film 'Glitter' created with Lucy English for her project 'The Book of Hours', and also a second film from that project: 'Things I found in the Hedge' by Kathryn Darnell.
The premiere screening will be on 4 May, 2019 at Garden Gallery, Murwillumbah, Australia. See the program itinerary for more details, including the outstanding live poets performing on the night.
Marie says that: "The program is designed to be highly portable, and easily obtainable on request to screening spaces in any location."
