Lovely review of The Poetics of Poetry Film by leading animator Professor Suzie Hanna in the Lisbon-based International Journal of Film and Media Arts –Vol. 7 No. 1 (2022): GEECT Transversal Entanglement – Artistic Research in Film. Thank you so much Suzie and editor Anna Coutinho. A valued endorsement.
Following on from Vancouver I will be giving a reading with Marc Zegans at Adobe Books, SF on the 10th. Really looking forward to hearing him read from his new book and also I will be reading a selection of poems from poetry films and also unpublished poems 'being gathered' for TREE family history project. I will also be discussing The Poetics of Poetry Film and the historical relevance of poetry film to SF.
,Excited about Tom Konyves Poets with a Video Camera symposium (I am very lucky to be key speaker) and the poetry reading on the 6th – Poems by Poetry Filmmakers with the wonderful symposium speakers; a lot of inspiring people!
Bideodromo International Experimental Film and Video Festival in Bilbao has accepted Villanelle this year (Spanish version). It will be screened in the Art House Zinema of the BilbaoArte Art Production Centre this Friday, the 17th October. So very pleased as many experimental festivals don't accept poetry films, although this film is more on the experimental side. Wish I could be there :( as it has a wide selection from across the world.
