PoetryFilm at the O Bheal Indie Cork Festival (Ireland), 10-11 October 2015
I will be presenting a curated PoetryFilm screening from The PoetryFilm Archive at the O Bheal Indie Cork International Film Festival on Sunday 11 October at 4pm in the Smurfit Theatre, Firkin Crane, Cork (Ireland).
PoetryFilm is the influential research art project founded by British artist Zata Banks in 2002, exploring and exhibiting experimental text / image / sound material. For the PoetryFilm screening in Cork, Zata will introduce a curated selection of short film artworks, chosen for their alignment with poetic structures and experiences, and with the visual, verbal and aural languages of poetry in various forms.
Since 2002, Zata Banks has presented over 70 PoetryFilm events at venues including Tate Britain, The ICA, CCCB Barcelona, O Miami, The Groucho Club, Cannes Film Festival, The Royal College of Art, FACT Liverpool, Mengi Reykjavik and Curzon Cinemas. Zata has judged poetry film prizes for the Southbank Centre in London, Zebra Festival in Berlin, CYCLOP Festival in Kiev, and for the American journal Carbon Culture Review. PoetryFilm is supported by Arts Council England, and is a member of Film Hub London, part of the BFI Audience Network. The PoetryFilm Archive, which at present contains over 1,000 artworks, welcomes submissions all year round.
