Due to the fact that the Vienna Poetry Film Festival needs at least half a year longer preparation time, we are already inmiddle of organizing the Art Visuals & Poetry Festival 2019.
The reason, why it takes more time than at other film festivals is as follows: Many poetry films are specially created for the Vienna Poetry Film Festival. The call for entries will usually kept open for 6 months to give enough time to create poetry and text films. This concerns above all the „Special Award“ after the festival poem, but also the main competition.
Although there is currently a very pleasing intermediate level. However, some decisions still need to be taken before the new calls can be launched. We plan to open the new calls for entries of the Vienna poetry film competitions for begin of 2019. You can submit via FilmFreeway or via the festival website www.poetryfilm-vienna.com
The Viennese Art Visuals & Poetry Film Festival became 2017 the second-largest Poetry Film Festival word-wide. 36 film artists joined the festival. There were two short fim competitions and 4 competitions film blocks. But there was also a large international side program.
The fourth edition of the Art Visuals & Poetry Film Festival Nov 4-6,2017 can be considered as a great success. The audience loved the films, the film artists loved the festival. Everything went fine. Much more people were coming to watch the films. The Vienna audience started to discover estimate this new emerging film genre. The festival will show part of the festival program ON TOUR in co-operation with other cultural partners. The first Art Visuals & Poetry ON TOUR event started on December 6, 2017 at Stadtkino im Künstlerhaus Vienna.

Last reminder: The poetry Film Festival Call Vienna is reaching its final periode. You still can submit until March 30, 2017. The trends of the submitted films show a very high level of international films. We hope that the local film makers will close the gap of excellence on the finish line. Beside that we are highly impressed of the results of the Special Award after a given poem by Rainer Maria Rilke. It´s simply breath-taking, how different the same poem can be set into film.
