From StAnza 2012 short film: Daniel Warren

Initiated in 2007, the festival’s film programme is dedicated to showing both filmed poetry – either recordings of past readings or dramatisations of poetry – as well as the cutting edge medium of poetry film. A poetry film or videopoem strives for a symbiotic relationship of images, words, and sound and/or music. It can integrate all the arts – drama, dance, music, graphics and documentary elements. Some of the best poetry films and videopoems use stills, animation, documentary clips as well as abstract computer-generated graphics and narrative.
