PoetryFilm is the highly influential research art project founded by British artist Zata Banks in 2002, celebrating poetry films and other experimental text/image/sound material.

Mengi hosts diverse events every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The emphasis is on experimental art, be it music, installation, theatre, spoken word, visual art or any other interesting form of performance.

Mengi has no particular beginning nor an end.

On Thursday 16 July, Zata Banks will introduce a curated selection of film artworks, chosen for their alignment with poetry, with poetic structures, with poetic experiences, and with the visual, verbal and aural languages of poetry in various forms.

Since 2002, PoetryFilm has presented over 70 events at venues including Tate Britain, The ICA, Southbank Centre, FACT Liverpool, Cannes Film Festival, CCCB Barcelona, O Miami, The Royal College of Art, and Curzon Cinemas.

Zata Banks has also judged poetry film prizes for the Southbank Centre in London, Zebra Festival in Berlin, and Carbon Culture Review in America.

PoetryFilm is supported by Arts Council England, and is an accredited member of Film Hub London, part of the BFI Audience Network.

The PoetryFilm Archive, which at present contains c.1000 artworks, welcomes submissions all year round.
