See the Voice: Visible Verse 2008

Visible verse logoPacific Cinémathèque and curator Heather Haley are seeking videopoem
submissions from around the world for the annual Visible Verse
screening and performance poetry celebration. Visible Verse is North
America’s sustaining venue for the presentation of new and artistically
significant videopoetry.

Official guidelines:

Visible Verse seeks videopoems, with a 15 minutes maximum duration.
* Either official language of Canada is acceptable, though if the video
is in French, an English-dubbed or-subtitled version is required for
consideration. Videos may originate in any part of the world, however.
* Pieces will be judged on true literary merit. The ideal videopoem is
a wedding of word and image, the voice seen as well as heard.
* Please, do not send documentaries, as they are outside the featured genre.
* Videopoem producers should provide a brief bio, full name, and
contact information in a cover letter. There is no official application
form nor entry fee.
* Submission deadline is 1 September, 2008.
