Submissions are now open for The 2021 Film And Video Poetry Symposium.

Poets, writers, filmmakers, video artists, media artists, and digital artists are called to submit their work to the 4th Annual Film and Video Poetry Symposium.

The film festival and symposium will celebrate and screen a large scope of film and video projects developed primarily through the medium of poetry. FVPS will host a media gallery, a series of panels, guest speakers, and public dialogues regarding film and video poetry over the course of the symposium.

The Film and Video Poetry Symposium will accept submissions of poetry films, filmpoems, digital-poetry, poetry video, choreopoems, Cin(E)-Poetry, spoken word film and videos, videopoems, visual poetry, poetrinca, media poetry, and film and video works that are driven by onscreen text.

The Film and Video Poetry Symposium also calls for experimental film and video work that explores language and/or literature whether it is oral, written, visual, or symbolic. This includes non-narrative work and the avant-garde. We strongly consider work that challenges traditional and current visual communication methods while continuing to function as a mode for exploring narrative forms and personal expression.

The Film and Video Poetry Symposium also calls essay film, works of epistolary cinema, documentaries, animation, performance art film and video, and oratorical works. Lastly, The Film and Video Poetry Symposium seeks virtual reality projects, new technologies, 360° Video, digital art, video mapping, installation proposals, and video art presentations that feature, hybrid, or contain strong aspects of poetry.
