Film and Video Poetry Symposium

NAME OF FESTIVAL: Film and Video Poetry Symposium and Film Festival

SINCE: 2018

WHERE: Los Angeles, California, USA


The Film and Video Poetry Symposium and film festival will screen a large scope of film and video projects developed through the medium of poetry. Eligible submissions have a maximum length of 32 minutes. There are no restrictions regarding when the film was produced or if the film has premiered regionally or internationally. There are no restrictions on subject matter, theme or topic.

The Film and Video Poetry Symposium accepts poetry films, filmpoems, digital-poetry, poetry video, Cin(E)-Poetry, spoken word films, videopoema, visual poetry, poetrinca, and media poetry. The Film and Video Poetry Symposium also calls for experimental film and video work that explores language and/or literature whether it be oral, written, visual, or symbolic. This includes the film essay or cinematic essay, non-narrative work, and the avant guard. We strongly consider work that challenges traditional and current visual communication methods while continuing to function as a mode for exploring narrative and personal expression. Performance material, virtual reality projects, installation proposals, and video art presentations that hybrid or contain strong aspects of poetry are encouraged.
