1st WORLD-WIDE POETRY FILM AWARD AND FESTIVAL, July 2-5, 2002
Organised by the literaturWERKstatt Berlin in co-operation with interfilm Berlin Sponsored by the German Staatsminister für Kultur und Medien (Hauptstadtkulturfonds).
This is the first time that the ZEBRA POETRY FILM AWARD will be awarded as part of the renowned international literature festival, the "Berliner Sommerfest der Literaturen".
The first world-wide poetry film award creates a platform which is intended to enable comparison and exchange between productions both now and in the future.
The ZEBRA Award will be presented annually.
An international jury of film producers and directors, as well as representatives from the fields of television, video art and poetry will award at least three cash prizes. An audience prize and prizes in kind are also planned. A viewing commission will make a preliminary selection for the
final competition. Participants in the final competition will be informed by June 1, 2002 and can claim expenses for travel to the event.
All films and videos in all formats with a maximum length of 10 minutes can be entered - so long as they concentrate on one or more poem. Since the first invitation for applicants will also be used to provide an initial overview of already completed productions, the year when such productions were
completed is irrelevant for the competition. Thus, the invitation for applicants is
addressed to ALL previously completed poetry film projects.
For this reason, all productions entered will be shown in public at the festival on July 2-5, 2002.
Furthermore, an international colloquium will concentrate on the aesthetic tension between "verbalimagery" and "the language of images".
The application deadline is April 30, 2002.
