The best poetry films from around the world – and the world in a microcosm of poetry film. Poets and filmmakers question social norms and postcolonial structures, breaking taboos. Where great poetry performance encounters a moving story of pandemic-era adjustment. Poetic voices and images respond to the devastation wrought by armed conflict in Colombia. About 1,200 entries from over 90 countries were submitted to 2022’s ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival. A program committee nominated 25 of them for the International Competition. The three-member international jury will award the following prizes this year: the “ZEBRA Prize for the Best Poetry Film,” donated by the House of Poetry, the “Goethe Film Prize—Sustainable Living,” donated by the Goethe-Institut, and the “Ritter Sport Film Prize,” donated by Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co KG.
