Online Event

A poetry and film showcase from Open Source Arts.

Over two evenings, and in collaboration with filmmakers, animators, and poets, we explore how the creatives play on the senses of sight and hearing to multiply the impact of projects. Rather than just add-ons, film and poetry enhance each other to present something that is more than the sum of two separate projects.

After viewing a range of poetic styles and film formats, including short films, animations, we discuss the processes, motivations, and creative dexterity necessary to create a spoken word film and assess the techniques used in both forms as individual practices and collective practices. We are also including some documentaries as they can also share a similar motif of using film and speech to convey messages pertinent to the creative producer.  

Our guests will also share some of the lessons they have learnt in collaborating with creatives with different skill sets and the dynamic nature of working with multiple art forms.

Whether you write poetry, make films, or documentaries, and have an interest in broadening how your craft translates, or you’re just interested in any of these art forms, then we hope this is the event for you. We hope to ignite some inspiration for breaking through your own creative limits in these winter months.  

The event is over two evenings, on the 29th and 30th January, from 6-9pm on both days. We will show four sets of spoken word films, accompanied by Q+As and discussions. The event will be live-streamed and hosted on zoom and the films will be synced for group watching through the ‘Watch Together’ app.
