I am delighted to announce that the Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival has partnered with PoetryFilm to co-curate a special screening event as part of the 2015 Festival, featuring a diverse 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. The 45 minute screening will be followed by a 15 minute Q&A with some of the filmmakers, chaired by Zata Kitowski.

The Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival will take place 16-19 April 2015 in Hawick, Scotland, UK.

Full programme details will be released shortly.

PoetryFilm in Athens, 24-26 April 2015

I am delighted to announce that PoetryFilm will be contributing a special programme of poetry films focusing on the body and gender/identity to the sound acts event in Athens in April 2015.

sound acts

 

A gathering, festival and symposium of sound artists and academics that work around notions of performance and identity is happening in Athens on the 24, 25, 26 of April. The event will host a wide series of performances, lectures and workshops from practitioners working in Greece, Europe and America, in most cases presenting new work.

The central body of the event revolves around FYTINI, Greece’s first queer music label, which emerged out of a series of happenings organised by conceptual art duo FYTA at the Athens Biennale 2013. Since its creation, the label has developed relationships and presented work in Europe, with most important point of reference LCC’s sound:gen- der:feminism:activism conference, the biggest international event of this kind.

sound acts will be the first such event in Greece, introducing the athenian audience to work not frequently seen and hopefully opening a dialogue about gender and identity politics within sound production.

With: Alex C (GR), Andriana Minou presents ‘Epicycle’ by Jani Christou (UK/GR), Caoimhe Mader McGuinness (UK/FR), DoDo (DE/GR), Erica Scourti (UK/GR), Frantic Aerostat (GR), FYΤA (GR), Holly Ingleton (UK), Les Trucs (DE/FR), Georges Jacotey (GR), INVASORIX (MX), Kostis Stafylakis (GR), Maria Dolores & Hundin Atxe (ES), Nanah Palm (UK/GR), Peter Cant (UK), Alexandros Drosos & Ioanna Forti (GR), Procne & Philomela (GR), Sex Workers Opera (UK/FR), Tante & Tante (UK/DE), Tara Rodgers (US), Zata Kitowski (UK)

All events will be free for the audience, adhering to the label’s DIY ethos and politics of inclusion. sound acts is also free of sponsoring, being funded solely by the label and artists themselves, with the help of crowd–funding.

The ultimate aim is the creation of a creative community, as well as a new counter-audience.
