The Interpreter's House

poetry publication

Poetry Film Live is an exciting new collaboration with The Interpreter's House to show some of the best and most inspiring film and video poetry from the UK and around the world, by both new and established poets and poetry filmmakers.

The first edition features poetry films from international poets and filmmakers
Robert Peake, Marie Craven, Judith Dekker and a new film from Marc Neys.
We also feature an interview with Martin Rieser, Visiting Professor in the Digital
Cultures Research Centre at the University of the West of England.


The editorial bias is toward poetry films with an emphasis on a convincing poetic experience rather than simply technical excellence. We encourage poet-made films or where the filmmaker has worked closely with the poet. We also encourage work from poets who are new to poetry film.

Poetry film harmonises words, images and sound to create a new poetry experience … it’s more than spoken words, visual images and sound being in the same room together, it’s their ability to talk to one another that creates the magic in poetry film.
