Matryoshka goes global

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_782When Iris Anne Lewis embarked on making her own poetry film as part of the Swindon Poetry Film Collective, she did not imagine that her film Matryoshka would be shown in events across the globe. Starting off with an show  in Chippenham, the Poetry Film Collective decided to arrange showings of all their work around the South West of England, including Swindon, Bristol and Shepton Mallet. That seemed exciting!

But then the Collective decided to submit their work to the Athens International Video Poetry Festival. All the films were accepted for the Athens Festival. This led to a further invitation to send the films to the Renaissance Festival in Australia. Poetry film certainly has an international reach.
