The “International Poetry Filmfestival of Thuringia” is a new annual festival dedicated to the genres of poetry film and videopoetry. The center of the festival is the presentation of the Weimar Poetry Film Award at the Lichthaus cinema.
The aim of the festival is to stimulate and perpetuate the exchange between filmmakers and authors in Thuringia and Central Germany. Weimar is a place of literature and art, and a city of great poets and poetry. It lends itself particularly well to such a competition.
The “Poetryfilmtage” emerged from the backup_festival of the Bauhaus-University Weimar. The festival is characterized by the close connection between an international competition, its own film production, and an online magazine (Poetryfilmkanal).

The curators of the International Video Poetry Festival, one of the biggest video poetry festivals in the world organized for ten years now in Athens, represent the contemporary Greek poetry scene and introduce us to an inspirational creative world.
