Over the past few months I have been settling in to a new role as a contributing editor to MovingPoems.com alongside Dave Bonta and Marie Craven. I'm mainly looking at festival news and calls for work, but I've also been interviewing people.
First up was Adam Stone - at his suggestion, and I'm very pleased that he did suggest it because his thoughts on how to find festivals for poetry film was interesting and very useful. And the most recent was with Lee Campbell – about his wide-ranging practice and how he developed hybrid film/live performance on Zoom.
A trip to the Isle of Sheppey in the Thames Estuary for the Absurd Art House Film Festival on 9th July 2022. I was lucky to be selected for 'Because Goddess is Never Enough' alongside some other films of very high standards and took the opportunity for an impromptu trip to the seaside. The venue was a lovely old music hall. More about it in my review of the event on MovingPoems.com
I didn't quite make it to the final line-up ... but considering around 500 entries to the Women X Film Festival I am still very pleased to have received an Honourable Mention from the judges for 'Because Goddess is Never Enough'. The event will take place from 2-4 September in Darlington, UK.
