TRANAS AT THE FRINGE 2–9 July
International screening of experimental films and videopoems
If you can get there try to visit Tranas this year, where there are three sections, literature, film and performance arts. I am very impressed by their curations so it is very well worth a trip, and their details are very enticing!
Tranås at the Fringe is a multidisciplinary arts festival in the small town of Tranås (Sweden), a charming place on the edge of lake Sommen, surrounded by the woodlands of Småland. For eight days, artists from Sweden and other countries from different disciplines in literature, film and performing arts meet and put on about 100 events.
I am very proud and pleased to have my family history poetry film Firewash in the film section and would dearly like to have gone, but I have just come back from a working holiday and I had to take that opportunity. But the idea of taking time out at Tranas feels a perfect place to reconnect with yourself – and discover some amazing artists.
Magdalena Korecka is a research associate in the ERC-project ‘Poetry in the Digital Age’, University of Hamburg https://www.poetry-digital-age.uni-hamburg.de/en.html. She saw Firewash at ZEBRA and is kindly posting on it on Thursday 30th June. She says about The Poetics of Poetry Film ‘your book is very inspiring and already on my reading list!’ A big thank you to Magdalena!
