PoetryFilm is a living research project initiated by Malgorzata Kitowski in 2002 exploring the semiotics and meaning-making approaches of the PoetryFilm genre. PoetryFilm celebrates experimental poetryfilms, films based on poems, poems turned into films, collaborations, art films, text-based films, sound-informed films and other avant-garde text/image/sound material. The PoetryFilm project has resulted in over 60 events at cinemas, galleries, literary festivals and academic institutions featuring films, poetry readings, live performances and talks. The PoetryFilm Archive contains hundreds of international text/image/sound materials s_ubmitted to the project.

Previous PoetryFilm events include Tate Britain, the ICA, the Southbank Centre, the Royal College of Art, Cannes Film Festival, O Miami Festival, Laugharne Castle and Curzon Cinemas, among others. For more information please visit or email [email protected]

For the Supernormal Festival, Malgorzata Kitowski will present a curated programme accompanied by live performance.
