POETRY PROJECTIONS II

York Quay Centre, Studio Theatre
Harbourfront Centre

LIFT and the IFOA present the premier of ten new collaborative works
bridging film and poetry. Each project has been commissioned by LIFT as a
pairing of a poet and a filmmaker, each with distinct voices in their
medium. The collaborative pairs have each produced a short film to
engage a visual dialogue with the poets’ work, most of whom will read
live.

The program of ten new works will be preceded by a selection from the
2005 program and followed by a discussion with the poets and filmmakers
on cross-disciplinary collaboration. Reception to follow.
