Motionpoems’ Season 7 poetry films to premiere in October

Autumn in the northern hemisphere usually brings the highest concentration of poetry film festivals and screening events worldwide, and this year, Motionpoems is set to join the fray, with the long-awaited world premiere of their Season 7 films to be held on October 27 in Minneapolis. (There’s also a Rooftop Sneak Preview scheduled for October 20.) Visit splashthat.com to reserve your tickets.

Motionpoems is the world’s only poetry film company. For our seventh season, we’ve partnered with Cave Canem to produce a series of films based on fantastic poems by Black poets. We’ll premiere them for the first time on October 27 at the Walker Art Center Cinema (1750 Hennepin Avenue), and we want to see you there. NOTE: There are TWO showings: One at 6pm and one at 8pm. Reserve your seats today for a $10 donation! They go fast!

This does mean that it will conflict directly with the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival in Münster (October 27-30), where I’m sure at least a few of Motionpoems’ films will be screened.
