In the poetry-and-film workshop Poetic Encounters artists from two genres and two countries come together. Berlin filmmakers Matthias Fritsch, Juliane Henrich and Axel Krüger have selected the Polish poets Agnieszka Wolny-Hamkało, Jakobe Mansztajn and Tomasz Różycki in advance to work with them on making filmed versions of their poems. Filming work then took place in Warsaw.
The workshop Poetic Encounters took place for the third time. 2012, Polish filmmakers met poets from Berlin and 2010 filmmakers from Israel worked on filmed versions of poems by German poets.
In cooperation with the Fundacja bez Wizy. With the support of the Foundation for German-Polish Cooperation, the Goethe Institute Warsaw and the Polish Institute Berlin.
