Iris Anne Lewis is a member of the Poetry Film Collective which will be presenting their films in an event in Chippenham on Thursday August 2nd, 7 – 9pm at the Old Road Tavern.
Poetry film brings together words, images and sound to create a new experience – part poetry, part artwork, part short film. A good poetry film aims to be more than just the sum of its parts… as if somehow the words, pictures and sounds talk to one another and come alive in fresh, sometimes surprising, ways.
The Swindon-based Poetry Film Collective was set up in 2018 as a six-month project funded by Arts Council England to explore how people from different artistic backgrounds might approach poetry film-making. We are all poets. Some of us are also performers, film-makers, musicians and visual artists. Some of us have lots of experience in one area while others are just starting out in another.
All of us have made a poetry film and we’d love to share them with you!
Each film is short-short (around 2-3 minutes) and there’s a real variety of work.
We’ll screen several films, then have an interval to grab a drink and have a chat, then screen several more.
7pm for a 7.30pm start.
We’ll finish by 9pm. You’re very welcome stay and chat / relax / enjoy a drink until pub closing time.
FREE ENTRY. NO NEED TO BOOK, JUST COME ALONG.
