Three Motionpoems screenings upcoming in Minnesota

Via their email newsletter, I just learned about two upcoming events from Motionpoems in Minneapolis/St. Paul: a double screening of a dozen new poetry films on April 24th, and a screening of poetry films by Minnesota authors on April 29th. The full details are currently posted at, though for archival purposes, let me also link directly to the image file.

I’m sure Angella and Todd will eventually post their 2013 films to Vimeo, probably one a month as they have in the past, but if you’re anxious to see them all now and on the big screen, then clearly you need to get to the world premiere screenings on April 24th!

    When I think of poetry film or poetry video in Minnesota, I think of the great work David Bengtson has done as the first teacher in the nation to teach videopoetry in the classroom. These festivals should invite him to read his work and share his wisdom.

    Just my two cents.

      Granted that the poetry videos (almost all animations) which Motionpoems produce are a bit different from videopoetry/cin(e)poetry, Mr. Bengtson does sound like a good resource for Angella and Todd. I passed your comment on to them. Thanks.
