Are you looking for tickets to the 2015 shows? You can pick them up right here =)
Welcome back to a new year of the Rabbit Heart Poetry Film Festival, sister! Presented by Doublebunny Press and based out of Worcester, MA*, the name just fits.
This film festival is about bringing together poetry and the visual arts at the intersection of film.** Anyone can make a video of a poet reading a poem, but that’s not what Rabbit Heart is all about. What we’re looking for is what can be done visually with a poem, without showing performance.*** The poem can be the soundtrack, and the springboard for what happens visually – show, don’t tell is the rule.
And we are rewarding awesome work! Yes, really! Rabbit Heart will be awarding prizes at the viewing party in October! Best Overall Picture will win $200, and there will be $100 prizes in categories for Best Animation, Best Music in a Video, Best Phone/ Smartphone Production, Best Under 1 Minute, and Best Valentine.
Did I mention the viewing party and awards ceremony? Yes, that’s right – this will be our second year at Nick’s Bar, where there will be a rollicking good screening party on October 11th. Winners will be announced, popcorn will be served, and the guests will be glamorous! OMG, SO MUCH FUN! You can see the pictures from the 2014 party on the Show page, and view the finalists’ videos on our YouTube page. (DVDs are available, too, in the store.)
*The Heart of Massachusetts, natch.
**Ok ok, video. Or that digital place where pictures dance pretty to sound. You know, like a movie.
***No performance! No one reading the poem. Not even a little bit. Upworthy’s got that covered, they do it right and delightfully. It’s just not what’s going on here.
Doublebunny is proud to announce that we have been awarded a grant from the state this year – here’s the dish:
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
