poetry + film
September 19, 2016
Since we’re fans of poetry and film, we like to keep track of the places they intersect, especially when there’s a Cascadia link. Here’s one: Poetry Shorts.
Poetry Shorts is a project of The Northwest Renaissance: Poets, Performers & Publishers. It was created in 2015 by actor and poet Emilie Rommel Shimkus and is supported by The Tacoma Arts Commission and 4Culture.
The inaugural Poetry Shorts film is Tell Your Children, a series of four short films based on poems. It is currently in post-production and will premiere on Monday, October 24, 2016, at 7:00pm at The Grand Cinema in Tacoma.
