3 of my video's are selected to be screened at Visible Verse 2012;
'The Road not taken'
'Odds and Ends'
Visible Verse, Pacific Cinémathèque’s annual festival of video poetry, moves this year from its customary November spot to a new, post-VIFF October date and goes really, really global! Vancouver poet, author, musician, and media artist Heather Haley curates and hosts our celebration of this hybrid creative form, which integrates verse with media-art visuals produced by a camera or a computer. The 2012 festival will be selected from entries received from more than 50 international artists, who submitted nearly 100 video poems. Submissions include works from Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, Poland, Russia, the U.S., and Canada. And, for the first time, we are exchanging video poems with Argentina’s VideoBardo Festival and featuring a selection from their 2012 program. As well, we are happy to host Alberta artist Phillip Jagger, who will perform his poetry and also present “Reigning In Chaos: Words Into Video,” a hands-on workshop demonstrating the use of handcrafted video, a Kaos pad, iPod, and video jamming software.
