Alexis Krasilovsky's new poetry film, "The Parking Lot of Dreams" will screen at the International Poetry Film Festival, Hollywood on April 30th. For information and festival tickets, click here.
Beyond Baroque presents the inaugural screening of the International Poetry Film Festival, Hollywood, featuring over 40 poetry-based films from 12 countries. Each film is unique in its exploration of merging both visual and literary art forms. Over the last decade, poem-based filmmakers have been increasingly interested in interpreting poetry in visual terms and exploring the use of poems as the spine of their stories, not just as a script, but as the visual expression of the movement of words. To read the full press release, please visit Beyond Baroque's website.
Co-curated by the festival's founder, Lynn Holley, the official selection of films will be screened at our newly renovated and historic theater in any of the four categories: Animation, Experimental, Documentary, and Narrative. The screenings will also be accompanied by poetry readings from special guests, followed by an award ceremony, and a reception. Celebrate with us the last day of poetry month in the company of poets and filmmakers across the world!
