Video and poetry meet in Italian festival
Trevigliopoesia's La Parola Immaginata is "a festival dedicated to poetical words and video images with the aim to reach a mix of art expressions through new strategies, conceptions and methods. Video poetry means poems connected with all kind of images. And videoportraits, videodocumentaries and animation about poets and poetry." To kick off the call for entries, which is open now until October 2011, the festival has even produced its own video poem this year and posted the previous years' winners going back to 2008 on its YouTube channel. Each video is poetic in its own right, even if you don't speak Italian.
