Cadence 2021 – Haiku You: An All-Ages Film Poetry Workshop

Zoom workshop hosted by Echo Park Film Center
Apr. 28 from 4–5pm PT
Duration: 1h


A Japanese verse form most often composed, in English versions, of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. A haiku often features an image, or a pair of images, meant to depict the essence of a specific moment in time.” — Poetry Foundation

In this workshop for poets and new poets, filmmakers and new filmmakers, we’ll use the natural wonders of the spring season as our inspiration to write and share haikus and then turn them into a collaborative short film. Everyone is welcome at this free event!

This workshop is presented as a part of Cadence Film Festival 2021 (April 16–25).
