Invitation to enter the 5th ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival
For the 5th time, the Literaturwerkstatt Berlin and interfilm Berlin are inviting entries for this competition to choose the best poetry films!
Entries should be short films based on one or more poems. A programme commission will decide which of the films entered will be featured in the competition or shown in the programme as part of the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival from 14 –17 October 2010 in Berlin in the Babylon Cinema. An international jury will decide the winners. The prizes awarded will be the ZEBRA Award for the Best Poetry Film, the Film Poetry Award of the Goethe Institute and the Ritter Sport Award, donated by Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co KG, to a total value of € 10,000. The deadline for entries is 14 June 2010 (full conditions of entry can be found at www.literaturwerkstatt.org). The ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival has established itself as an international forum for short films that deal with the content, aesthetics or form of poems. It offers filmmakers and poets from around the world the opportunity to exchange ideas and define positions.
The ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival is a cooperation project between the Literaturwerkstatt Berlin and interfilm Berlin and is kindly supported by the Capital Cultural Fund, the Goethe Institute, Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co KG and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH. It takes place as part of the poesiefestival berlin.
