Four films from the Nordic countries have been selected for the competition by the ZEBRA Programme commission. Four times the poets were directly involved in the creation of the films, sometimes even behind the camera. A good reason to gather these poets together and let them speak about their experience of film and of course with their poems!

Poetic Encounters. The 1st Berlin - Tel Aviv Workshop for Poetry & Film
1.45 pm Kino 2
For the first time in the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival a realisation workshop is taking place. The Literaturwerkstatt Berlin is bringing filmmakers from Tel Aviv together with poets from Berlin and allowing them to work together on poetry films. The results will be shown in the festival and of course the poets and filmmakers will be talking about their joint work and answering questions from the audience. Emanuella Amichai, Avi Dabach and Joshua Simon have been in an intensive exchange since the summer of 2010 with poets Daniel Falb, Monika Rinck and Jan Wagner. Poetry meets film, poets meet filmmakers. Beyond national boundaries, the three pairs of artists immersed themselves in each others' work and wrote scripts for their poetry films. They will be meeting before the festival to transform their ideas into film in six days.
The project is promoted by the German-Israeli Future Forum Foundation. With the kind support of Cine Impuls, XEN.ON° Television Campus, Suity-Berlin Apartments, Berlinpiloten and 25p *cine support, luxom medienprojekte gmbh.
Dance Rhymes (rep.)
2.45 pm Kino 3
Poetry and music just belong together.Rhythm and rhyme harmonise in many wonderful melodies. Poetry has always moved artists in other genres to create performances and choreographies. It is lovely to see how a loving wife only makes her husband ersatz coffee all his life and he never notices. How bizarre does it sound when someone philosophises about addiction? Or what do Marco Polo and high heels really have in common?
