Call for submissions: 20th anniversary Videobardo International Videopoetry Festival

VideoBardo, founded in 1996, calls on artists to participate in the VideoBardo 20 Years International Videopoetry Festival (VI), which is composed of preliminary events throughout 2016 in different cities and places, and by a central week in November in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

We understand Videopoetry as all audiovisual work where verbal language (word, letter, speech, speaking, writing, and sign) is protagonist or has a special transformer treatment. Therefore these three fields: Image in movement, Sound and Verbal language, dialog with each other in order to create a fourth reality which is the Videopoetic Work. So in videopoetry the verbal language is experienced in visual, sound, corporal and physical dimensions.

Spanish subtitles must be provided for all films not in Spanish. Click through for the guidelines and a submission form.
