EPFC | April 21st, 2022

Verse meets visuals in motion at Northwest Film Forum (NWFF) in April. Cadence Video Poetry Festival, presented by Northwest Film Forum, programmed in collaboration with Seattle author Chelsea Werner-Jatzke and artist Râna San, is a series of screenings, workshops, and discussions on the genre of video poetry, taking place annually during National Poetry Month. This year’s festival takes place in-person April 21–24 and online April 21 – May 1.

Cadence approaches video poetry as a literary genre presented as visual media, cultivating new meaning from the combination of text and moving image.

EPFC is delighted to partner with Cadence for the second year in a row with Haiku You, a free all-ages online film/poetry workshop. Sign up here!
