“I can see the genre evolving and becoming increasingly acknowledged; however, there is still significant scope for development. Poetry films offer opportunities to create fresh semiotics and to explore the art of meaning-making in new ways. Of Southbank Centre’s seventy three competition entries, the strongest material best embraced these challenges.’
Zata Kitowski, Founder and Director of PoetryFilm, who has been researching poetry and film since 1999, and producing curated PoetryFilm events and building the PoetryFilm Archive since 2002. July 2014.
