We received the following press release from CYCLOP organizer Polina Horodyska:
21 to 23 November, 2014, in Kyiv the 4th CYCLOP Videopoetry Festival will be held. The program features video-visual poetry related lectures, workshops, round tables, discussions, presentations of international contests and festivals, as well as a demonstration of the best examples of Ukrainian and world poetry films, competitive program, awarding ceremony and other interesting intermediary projects.
This year lectures are devoted to the birth of the concept, experience of poetry film creation, visual component of literary projects, and videopoetry in cinematic discourse. At Saturday’s showing, you can watch the best examples of new Ukrainian videopoetry. On Sunday, we will show the unique festival video of international contests. You will also have an opportunity to watch the 1st ‘Videopoetry Laboratory’ findings and take part in their discussion, and to visit an incredible poetic-musical-visual «rozdilovi» performance prepared for the fest by «ArtPole» creative agency…
The International Poetry Film Festival’s selection will be shown on November 23, Sunday, at 12:00 – 16:30.
The program for the international screening, organized by cooperating film festival, is very international indeed. I was impressed by how many different festivals they’re working with: VideoBardo in Argentina; AVaspo in Vilnius; Liberated Words in Bristol; KHM Cologne & Kunststiftung NRW in Berlin; Rabbit Heart in Worcestor, Massachusetts; Ó Bhéal in Cork; and ZEBRA in Berlin.
