You can view the long list for the festival HERE. Great submissions all around, and I'm excited to see which films are chosen for the final "Best Of" categories.
This is a great time to be exploring video poetry. I am currently working on a book of critical craft essays, and several of the pieces center around video poetics. How do poems change as they're translated from the page and the screen? What of poems that are made exclusively as video projects, never appearing in traditional print or in a text-based format-- what can those teach us about poeisis? These are just a few questions I've been mulling over. More to come.
