Poetry + Video at The Word


A touring programme of video poems from around the world. Curated by Australian film-maker Marie Craven, this hour long collection, which includes screen adaptations of page poetry, prose poetry, animations, poetic cinema, text-on-screen and spoken word, will be available to view in our Ground Floor Pod.

Poetry + Video includes film makers and writers at different levels of experience and reputation, from the most prolific, enduring and highly-regarded practitioners in experimental and poetry film-making, to newer artists with fresh and distinctive styles. Poetry + Video is for anyone curious about ways of expressing word, image and sounds.

Please note: Contains strong language.


Video poetry is a genre of film-making with origins reaching far back into cinema history, especially within the areas of the experimental and avant garde. Beyond this, it is a modern manifestation of poetry itself, which began in ancient time as an oral form, and has been adapting and evolving with new technologies ever since.
