Adaptation, interpretation or illustration – how to convert a poetic image to a filmic one? Filmmakers translating the latest National Poetry Competition-winning poems into visual form answer the question with a swirling charcoal animation, a tableau of Lego men and a choreography of dancers and fallen leaves.

Filmpoem makers James William NortonHelmie Stil and Sarah Tremlett will screen all ten NPC films at the Poetry Café this October. National Poetry Competition commended poets Sam Harvey and Laura Scott will bring the poetry – join them all for a lively reflection on the filmpoem-making process.
