Put on by Northwest Film Forum
A screening of video poetry packages from fellow festivals around the world featuring a selection of non-English language works. Showcase will include curated picks from Nudo, festival de poesía visual in Barcelona, Spain; Ó Bhéal International Poetry-Film Competition in Cork, Ireland; and International Video Poetry Festival in Athens, Greece. This event is part of Cadence: Video Poetry Festival.
Video poetry is language as light. As an art form, video poetry is lucid and liminal—on the threshold of the literary and the moving image. It articulates the poetic image visually, rather than metaphorically—it shifts words from page to screen, from ink to light. A video poem makes meaning that would not exist if text was without image, image without text. It is language-based video work or a video-based poem. Video poetry is a literary genre presented as visual media.
