A screening of short poetry films curated by British artist Zata Banks.

Since 2002, PoetryFilm has presented over 70 events at venues including Tate Britain, The ICA, Mengi Reykjavik, 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.
