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