$12 General Admission
A showcase of the new video poetry generated by the festival’s many programs! The screening features the outcomes of both the youth and adult video poetry workshops, the work created by Catherine Bresner during her residency at Northwest Film Forum, the award-winning films from the open call for submissions, and a video poetry discussion featuring the local Cadence partner organizations.
Video poetry is language as light. As an art form, video poetry is lucid and liminal—on the threshold of the literary and the moving image. It articulates the poetic image visually, rather than metaphorically—it shifts words from page to screen, from ink to light. A video poem makes meaning that would not exist if text was without image, image without text. It is language-based video work or a video-based poem. Video poetry is a literary genre presented as visual media.
