As part of the ‘Place for Poetry’ Conference at Goldsmiths in May last year, the Film Poem Exhibition showed how film is used with poetry at the interface of many different disciplines, including art, medicine and politics.
Goldsmiths, The Poetry Society and Filmpoem come together to bring you an evening of poetry films, curated by Alastair Cook, with screenings from poets such as Alice Oswald, John Glenday, Vicki Feaver and Michael Symmons-Roberts. Alastair will also premiere Amerika, featuring twenty poets’ work. Alastair will be joined for the Q&A by speakers including cinematographer James William Norton, poet Jenny Lewis, Director of the Poetry Society Judith Palmer and Goldsmith’s Head of Digital Media, Mark Edmondson.
Come along, watch the work and find out how you can use this exciting medium in your own creative practice. Look at different collaborative methods, and understand simple techniques with advice and support from Goldsmiths’ Digital Media Team.
