Poetry In Film Festival - Enter Now!

The Poetry in Film Festival (PIFF) is on the hunt for the feature poem to be interpreted into short films. This year’s theme is ‘The Future Imagined’ Submit your poem by June 30th 2012.

Poetry in Film Festival (PIFF) is the initiative that aims to bring the Australian arts community together with a festival combining film and poetry.
PIFF 2012, in its third year, is an exciting and innovative short film festival based in Melbourne, Australia. Although its home is Australia, the festival is accepting entries from around the world.
Entrants in the festival are given a piece of modern poetry. From there they are free to interpret the poem in the form of a 4-7 min short film however they see fit.
The films will be judged by a team of industry professionals and awards will be given for the following criteria:
- Best Direction
- Best Cinematography
- Best Film (Best interpretation of the poem)
- Audience choice (judged on the PIFF Showcase and Awards Night)
- Best Performance
The best films will be screened at the PIFF Awards Night at the Palace Cinema Como, November 18th, 2012, where the awards ceremony will take place. An after party will follow, where filmmakers have a chance to network with fellow filmmakers, PIFF organisers and industry professionals alike.
The best films will also be shown as a part of the festival circuit in various other locations, after the awards ceremony, throughout Victoria and Australia.
