I am very happy that Cultural Flotsam has been included in the 2017 Festival Silencio!

Festival Silêncio is the celebration of word. Word as a creative unit and the vehicle of both thought and artistic creation is the engine behind this project. Festival Silêncio will take place in 2017 between the 28th of September and October 1st at Cais do Sodré, Lisbon.

“This is not a movie. It’s a poem.” is a poetry film showcase organized within the Festival Silêncio that includes a national and an international competition. The films in competition will be the manifestation of audiovisual poetical language which will be using cinematographic narrative to state itself as a message.

 

O Festival Silêncio é um festival transdisciplinar e participativo que celebra a palavra como veículo de conhecimento e como unidade de criação. Durante quatro dias, a palavra instala-se no bairro do Cais do Sodré, num programa que percorre diferentes géneros e linguagens, através de um diálogo constante entre música, performance, conferências e conversas, cinema, exposições, literatura, intervenções e oficinas.

28 de Setembro e 1 de Outubro

This selection has been curated by Lucy English, Reader in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, co- founder of Liberated Words which creates, curates and screens poetry films and Zata Banks, founder of PoetryFilm, an influential research arts project and film screening series.
