For a full week this year, Fotogenia festival (who I partner with at Liberated Words) and directed by leading curator Dr Chris Patch, is running from November 23rd to December 1st. At https://www.fotogeniafilmfestival.org/en it is now in its fourth edition and is packed with a broad and eclectic selection of international works and includes live events alongside an online programme. I am one of the judges of the poetry film section and the entries were very difficult to judge, although one or two were highly innovative and a real delight to watch. Villanelle for Elizabeth not Ophelia is also in the festival programme 6 alongside artists such as Jane Glennie, Deborah Kelly and Tova Beck-Friedman in a section primarily related to women’s issues, and I am looking forward to being involved next week from an online point of view.
I just love this festival! I won it last year with Selfie with Marilyn so maybe I am biased, but I really applaude their approach and artistic creativity. I am also lucky enough to have my interview (in Spanish and English) with Javier Robledo celebrating 25 years of VideoBardo and The Poetics of Poetry Film in the event, as well. If you are in Spain please go along!
