2018 submissions are now closed – time to start dreaming up your next poetry movie <6
Looking for tickets? We gotcha – they’re right here =)
(The 2017 Festival has been put to bed for the year – you can see who won on the 2017 Finalists page)
Welcome back to 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. (Click here for full rules and guidelines.)
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 – in 2018 we will be back for our fifth here in Worcester, MA, where there will be a rollicking good screening party in October (and maybe another matinee screening too!) 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 2017 party at Nick’s on the Show page, and view the finalists’ videos on our YouTube page.
*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 & Button have that covered, they do it right and delightfully. It’s just not what’s going on here.
