CINEPOETRY: A workshop for filmmakers and writers

March 2 at12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$30 – $40

Cinepoetry is a genre that combines visuals with literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas (poetry or spoken word), often with an element of performance.

  • For writers and spoken word artists looking to get into a visual medium
  • For filmmakers who are looking to try writing or a different kind of writing, outside linear storytelling.

Participants will be encouraged to bring a (short) piece of their own writing to work with. During the course of the workshop, participants will be taught the basics of recording their pieces and choosing or creating video footage that is evocative. Emphasis will be put on creativity and experimentation with readily available tools rather than big production, encouraging participants to create a short work that speaks to them emotionally.
