Art Visuals & Poetry Film Festival 2019
Traditionally, the artist community and art association Art Visuals & Poetry has once again organized two poetry film competitions: The second competition called "Special Award" was open for all nations, but dedicated to a given festival poem. In 2019 we have chosen the poem "First" by the Austrian writer Sophie Reyer. The festival provides this poem as a soundtrack to all participating film makers including the copyrights and an English translation. The main competition of the Vienna Poetry Film Festival 2019 was restricted to filmmakers of the German-speaking countries. Submission closed May 20, 2019!
The Poetry Film itself is a hybrid of literature and film and a child of the digitization, although the oldest known poetry film was made in 1905 in the United States.
In 2019, the Art Visuals & Poetry Film Festival will showcase a major US focus. Guest will be America's largest poetry film production label Motionpoem. A German partner festival is going to screen US poetry films. More details soon! We you will join the festival!
