Call for submissions: poetry films about love

The UK-based PoetryFilm art project welcomes general submissions throughout the year, but director Zata Banks has just issued a special invitation to submit poetry films about love:

All topics and themes are welcome, and material exploring LOVE is invited specifically for an event in December 2015.

Work welcome: poetry films, art films, text films, sound films, silent films, collaborations, auteur films, films based on poems, poems based on films, and other experimental text/image/sound screening and performance material.
