Call for work: ekphrastic video poems

Part of Festival Fotogenia in Mexico in November/December 2023 is Frame to Frames: Your Eyes Follow II. This is an ekphrastic video poem screening and prize competition.

Organisers are looking for films under 10 minutes, but preferably around 5 minutes, that are based on paintings or other works of art. Submitted films must include subtitles – in Spanish for films in English, or in English for films in Spanish or other languages.

There is also the option of working with the painting chosen for the festival: Huapango Torero by leading contemporary Mexican artist Ana Segovia (courtesy the artist and Karen Huber Gallery).

    I have a short comedic ekphrastic film that runs a little over 4 minutes. It was previously entered and selected for the REELpoetry contest in 2022. Would my film qualify as an entry in your upcoming contest?

    Hi William – you’ll need to contact Liberated Words themselves via their website if you want to confirm that as they are the event organisers.
