The best Poetry Films from all over the world – and the world in the microcosm of the poetry film. Here, the city of Rome, swept empty of people by corona, clashes with scenes from a flight from Syria. A prayer for Belarus clashes with a hidden queer identity. And a schoolgirl’s message to Boris Johnson clashes with our ruined ecosystem. Around 1,500 entries from over 90 countries were submitted to the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival 2021. A programme committee has nominated 30 of those poetry films for the international competition. The following prizes will be awarded by the three-person international jury this year: the “ZEBRA Award for the Best Poetry Film”, sponsored by the Haus für Poesie, the “Goethe Film Award – Cultures of Equality”, sponsored by the Goethe-Institute, the “Award for the Best Film for Tolerance”, sponsored by the Federal Foreign Office, as well as the “Ritter Sport Film Award”, sponsored by the Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co. KG.
