Southbank Centre is very proud to announce the shortlisted poetry films for its inaugural poetry film competition. Shot Through the Heart Poetry Film competition received entries from all over the world and judges selected 10 films to showcase at the prize giving evening in the Purcell Room at Southbank Centre as part of Poetry International Festival on Friday 19 July.
There were two prizes – one for films made for adults and one for films made for children – all inspired by the themes of the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love.
