Film Poems Workshop, University of Glasgow, 2 – 4December, 2016



It’s the first live event from cinepoems! Poets, writers, filmmakers, performers, artists…your participation is wanted! Let’s make some filmpoems in one glorious weekend..

The Challenge

Get a team together. Find something to film with. Some editing software (you will probably have this on your computer already). Get yourself to Glasgow University on Friday 2nd December for a workshop and registration and then GO!

Venue:  Andrew Stewart Cinema, Gilmorehill Halls, 9 University Avenue, Glasgow G12 8QQ

You have 48 hours to write, film, edit and submit a filmpoem (up to 5 minutes long), and then be at the Andrew Stewart Cinema, University of Glasgow, for 6pm on Sunday 4th December. All filmpoems will then be screened, and our panel of judges will award prizes to the top three filmpoems. Other hijinks will ensue.

The Rules

The filmpoem MUST be written and filmed over the 48 hours of the December weekend – no cheating with pre-made films!
The filmpoem must be under 5 minutes long.
The submitting team (or at least a representative of it) must be there IN PERSON to deliver the finished filmpoem to the cinepoems team by 6pm on Sunday 4th December at the Andrew Stewart Cinema, University of Glasgow. Online entries will not be accepted. However, online registration for the event will be open 5- 6pm on Friday 2nd December if you can’t make the workshop in person.

Does it cost anything?

Cost of registration is £10 per team
