Dust off those camcorders! Literaturwerkstatt has announced it is accepting entries for the 7th Zebra Poetry Film Festival!
€13,000 in prizes will be awarded to films based on poems. How cool is that?
The Festival is also accepting short films based on this year's "Festival poem", entitled "Love in the Age of the EU," by Björn Kuhligk. The directors of the three best films will be invited to Berlin to meet and talk with the poet, as well as to present and discuss their films.
The Festival itself will be held 16-19 October 2014. Deadline for entries of poetry films is 25 April 2014.
Full details about the Festival, as well as terms for entries to the competition, can be found here.
Hope to see you at the Festival!
