Loop showings of filmpoems from Magma Poetry’s film issue

In 2017, the Festival of Creative Learning at the University of Edinburgh partnered with Magma Poetry on a collaborative project in which students from the prestigious Edinburgh College of Art Film Directing MFA/MA as well as from the Edinburgh Movie Production Society (EMPS) teamed up with poets specially selected by Magma editors. The filmmakers chose poems from a shortlist and used them to create original filmpoems. The films were screened at the preview event at the Adam House Cinema, Edinburgh, May 2018, and at the launch of Magma 71, The Film Issue, which took place at The Cinema Museum, London, July 2018.
