About this Event

7th Ó Bhéal Poetry Film Competition at IndieCork Festival

Poetry films are gaining ever more interest, both from academic and general public spheres, including writers and filmmakers who are compelled by films which carry poems in their hearts. A growing number of festivals are dedicated to the form and since 2013, IndieCork is delighted to partner with Ó Bhéal in screening these wonderful short films.

Enjoy a Sunday treat of poetry-films from around the world, as we present the the 2019 shortlist of 31 finalists, chosen out of 198 entries from 33 countries. This year’s judges are poet Stanley Notte and poet-filmmaker Colm Scully.

The winning entry will be announced at the IndieCork closing ceremony and will receive the Ó Bhéal / IndieCork award for best poetry-film. Selections from the shortlist will appear at a variety of festivals throughout 2020, as well as in screenings held at Ó Bhéal’s regular poetry event.
