Poem Film Editions

Poem Film Editions is a new imprint created by directors Sarah Tremlett and Csilla Toldy to publish innovative publications that not only include poetry, prose and images, but also links to poetry films from international poetry filmmakers around the world.

With a long-standing relationship with Spanish video poets and Spanish-speaking video poetry festivals such as: VideoBardo (Argentina) FOTOGENIA (Mexico City), Helios Sun (Mexico City) and Maldito (Spain) Poem Film is also keen to represent Spanish artists in the catalogue. As a result, the first publication from this exciting new imprint Frame to Frames : Your Eyes Follow is bilingual, celebrating both translation and transmedia.

Described as an innovative and unique project – Frame to Frames : Your Eyes Follow is a bilingual (English and Spanish) poetry book with a QR link to a 17-film screening of the poetry films made from the poems. The concept of a book-film arose from Sarah Tremlett’s Frame to Frames : Your Eyes Follow ekphrastic poetry film prize, where poetry filmmakers respond to works of art. The 2023 edition II of the prize was screened at FOTOGENIA, Mexico City, and the accompanying publication of the poems, synopses and stills from the QR-linked films alongside artists’ biographies was also launched at the same time, with a print date of April/May, 2024.
