‘Adventures in Poetry Film’ screening, Swindon, 7 November

Following a succesful premiere in August, the Poetry Film Collective heads to Swindon for our first tour date! Featuring films from Sam Loveless, Stephen Daniels, Iris Anne Lewis, Lucia Sellars, Dominic Weston, Brian Reid, Shauna Robertson, Tom Sastry, Sally Ann Russell, Chaucer Cameron and Helen Dewbery.

The Swindon-based Poetry Film Collective was set up in 2018 as a six-month project funded by Arts Council England to explore how people from different artistic backgrounds might approach poetry film-making. We are all poets. Some of us are also performers, film-makers, musicians and visual artists. Some of us have lots of experience in one area while others are just starting out in another.

All of us have made a poetry film and we’d love to share them with you!

Each film is short-short (around 2-3 minutes) and there’s a real variety of work.

We’ll screen several films, then have an interval to grab a drink and have a chat, then screen several more.

7pm for a 7.30pm start at Darkroom Espresso, Swindon.
