Spring is not far off and Newlyn Film Festival 2019 (5th-7th April) is beckoning for its second year. I am very pleased to say that Lucy and I have been invited to judge the poetry film strand again – and we are looking out for your inspiring entries.
A big thank you from myself and Lucy English to the very thought-provoking conference organisers: Professor Maggie Gee, Dr Kylie Fitzpatrick and Dr Tanvir Bush and everyone else who made the day so worthwhile.
The Book of Hours, a mammoth 48-strong poetry film collaboration between Lucy English and a talented collection of international poetry filmmakers, is being printing as we speak.
Lucy and I have just completed judging for the poetry film section of the inaugural Newlyn Film Festival.
Congratulations to everyone who entered, the standard was high and thank you to Diana Taylor and Martin Reiser for this very special opportunity.
Poetry Film Competition Results
Congratulations to everyone who entered – there were 77 films submitted with Lucy and I selecting ten from twenty shortlisted. We chose completely independently of each other and both had the same top three films.
The National Poetry Competition films will be shown on the big screen on Saturday the 28th of October at Depot Cinema in Lewes, East Sussex.
