The 3rd ZEBRA Poetry Film Award: On your marks, get set, go!

Apply now!

Together with interfilm berlin the 
Literaturwerkstatt Berlin is now calling for 
submissions for the 3rd ZEBRA Poetry Film Award. 
The deadline for receiving entries is 15 June 
2006. From 11 to 14 October 2006 an international 
jury will decide the winner of the 3rd ZEBRA 
Poetry Film Award, whose total prize money 
amounts to 10,000 euros. The registration form 
and rules of entry are at: <http://www.zebra-award.org/>www.zebra-award.org

The ZEBRA Poetry Film Award has established 
itself as the largest forum for the international 
poetry film and offers filmmakers from around the 
world the opportunity to exchange ideas and 
define positions. The ZEBRA Poetry Film Award 
offers a platform for a dynamic genre within the 
short film, a genre which has developed into an 
independent art form somewhere between 
literature, film and new media. Various special 
programmes, an international colloquium and a 
comprehensive retrospective complete the 3rd ZEBRA Poetry Film Award.

'So entertaining that even people who think 
poetry is the absolute pits can't help but fall 
under the spell of this event', is what the 
Berliner Zeitung wrote about the last ZEBRA 
Poetry Film Award. It was an enormous success: 
over 800 films came from 57 countries, a sign 
that the poetry film is enjoying growing popularity worldwide.

The ZEBRA Poetry Film Award is a project of the 
Literaturwerkstatt Berlin together with interfilm 
berlin, and gratefully acknowledges the financial 
assistance of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes 
(German Federal Cultural Foundation) and the Goethe Institute.
