Enjoy some poetry in motion at NYCPOFEST!
This year PSNY is partnering with the Visible Poetry Project to bring you the second annual Poetry Film Festival at NYCPOFEST! The Visible Poetry Project pairs 30 filmmakers with 30 poets each April to create 30 videos that present poems as short films. The Visible Poetry Project strives to make poetry accessible, exploring how we can recreate and experience poems through the medium of film.
Check out the film below by directors April Xiong and Adam Pivirotto, featuring a poem by Hettie Jones. And experience even more poetry films, organized by theme and accompanied by panel discussions with the poets and directors, at the New York City Poetry Festival! The program runs from 11:30am-5:30pm in building 408A on Colonel's Row on both Saturday & Sunday. Here is the schedule:
