The 3rd Annual Film and Video Poetry Symposium

Submissions are now open for The 2020 Film and Video Poetry Symposium.

Poets, filmmakers, media artists, and digital artists are called to submit their work to The 3rd Annual Film and Video Poetry Symposium!

For several days this film festival and symposium will screen a large scope of film and video projects developed through the medium of poetry. The symposium programmers also curate and present a 30 day gallery exhibit in conjunction with the film screenings. There are no restrictions regarding when films are produced or if the film has premiered regionally or internationally. There are no restrictions on subject matter, theme or topic. There are also no running time restrictions.

The Film and Video Poetry Symposium is accepting poetry films, filmpoems, digital-poetry, poetry video, Cin(E)-Poetry, spoken word films, videopoema, choreopoems, visual poetry, poetronica, 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 essay film 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 experimenting with narrative and personal expression.

Performance material, virtual reality projects, video mapping, installation proposals, and video art presentations that hybrid or contain strong aspects of poetry are encouraged.

Finally, The 2020 Film and Video Poetry Symposium will consider documentaries that focus on poets, poems, poetry, poetic technique, literary movements, and historical events within these realms.

DEADLINE: May 3, 2020 11:59PM PST


The 2020 Film and Video Poetry Symposium runs through the month of July, 2020
