Collaborate Create Curate

THE FILMS

this collection are seeking filmmakers to adapt our collected poems into short films about Edinburgh.

Filmmakers will:

o Be limited to a time-span of 100 beats, or at least as long as it takes to read the poem aloud at a reasonable pace
o Be required to use the content of the poem to create their film. This is not about creating a film about Edinburgh — it is about creating a film about Edinburgh based on a specific brief: the poem. Anyone can make a film about Edinburgh in their spare time at home. Not everyone can rise to the challenge of capturing a poem in film.
o Be given the opportunity to hear a little about the poet’s creative process and, if applicable, their expectations for the project
o Be given the opportunity to contact the poet and discuss ideas

All mediums are allowed (animation, experimental, narrative; shot on anything — mobile phones, DV/HD cameras, digital cameras, etc).
this collection seeks 100 inspiring, thought-provoking, acutely observant, witty and imaginative films based on 100 word poems!
