Let The Cameras Roll… the QLD Poetry Festival Filmmakers Challenge

For the past five years, the Queensland Poetry Festival Filmmakers Challenge has  been exploring the place where poetic expression and audio-visual technology collide and submissions for the 2011 Challenge are now welcome! 

QPF challenges filmmakers, video artists, poets, and all multimedia practitioners to create a short work (5 mins max); a record of poetry performance, a video text manipulation or something entirely different. We are looking for originality; creativity; a piece that shows your understanding of the many varied and wonderful possibilities of language. 

The winner will be announced at the 2011 Queensland Poetry Festival and the winning entry, along with a selection of shortlisted entries, will be screened at the festival (26 – 28 August). 

And the prize… well, $500 is up for grabs!

This year’s selection panel consists of Jacob Polley (2011 Arts QLD Poet-in-Residence), Francis Boyle (QPF Program Committee) and Sarah Gory (QPF Manager)

Entries close 5pm, Friday 15 July 2011.  Visit the Awards section of www.queenslandpoetryfestival.com for guidelines and entry forms.

Get those camera’s rolling!
