2013 Visible Verse Festival
4:00 pm - 11:00 pm
1131 Howe Street
Visible Verse, The Cinematheque’s annual festival of videopoetry and film, is back!
Vancouver poet, author, musician and media artist Heather Haley curates and hosts our celebration of this hybrid creative form, which integrates verse with the moving image. The 2013 programme has been selected from more than 200 entries received from artists and poets around the world including Shane Koyzan, Daniela Elza, CR Avery, Kirk Ramdath and Swoon Bildos. As well, we are happy to host Colorado poet, filmmaker and founder of the Body Electric Poetry Film Festival, R.W. Perkins, who will facilitate LITERARY MOVEMENT, an artist’s talk on videopoetry and filmmaking.
Videopoetry and poetry film festivals and sites continue to pop up all over the world. In addition to the esteemed Zebra Poetry Film Festival in Berlin and Video Bardo in Buenos Aires, the Filmpoem Festival and Liberated Words have recently emerged in the UK, along with Ó Bhéal International Poetry-Film Competition in Ireland, the Roma Poetry Film Festival, Motionpoems in Minneapolis and the aforementioned Body Electric Poetry Film Festival in Fort Collins, Colorado.
The Cinematheque’s Visible Verse Festival is proud to maintain its position as North America’s sustaining venue for artistically significant videopoetry and film.
