For some time I have been thinking about introducing a new initiative for poetry filmmakers.
Following The Poetics of Poetry Film publication, I would like to introduce the Sarah Tremlett Poetry Film Award, which celebrates and revisions art through ekphrastic poetry + film. This will be a wholly inclusive, internationally eligible award, funded by a cash prize. There will also be an in-depth interview showcasing the artist’s work. As someone who is/has been variously an arts journalist, textile designer, and painter as well as poet, theorist and filmmaker, I am keen to support artist filmmakers who both write poetry and make poetry films but also have a deep interest in the art world itself. More to come soon.
