Call for submissions: Rendez-vous vidéo-poésie du Festival de la poésie de Montréal 2017

I missed it last year (in part because I’m completely out of the loop with the Francophone videopoetry scene), but for the second year in a row, the Montreal Poetry Festival will include a videopoetry competition. Entries must have been made in 2016 or 2017, and either be the work of a Quebec artist or include extracts from Quebec poems. The deadline is March 6.

Video-poetry Rendez-vous will take place in the programming of the upcoming Montreal Poetry Festival, which runs from May 29 to June 4, 2017.

10 videopoemes will be selected to be screened at an evening at the Festival.

A jury of active members of the poetic and video community will present a prize of $ 500 to the winner of the competition.

Thus Google Translate. Here’s the whole call in French. It’s not clear whether videopoems in the other languages of Quebec, such as English or Cree–Montagnais–Naskapi, would be considered.
