It's going to be a real October Fest as I have some eight festival appearances scheduled in. All for the vidpoems I have been working on over the past year with a whole bunch of talented geezers.
Kicking off the show we have Those Women Searching For Cats shot by Conor Horgan and I Love The Internet animated by Bruce Ryder both of which just got selected for the O'Bheal IndieCork film festival. Internet also just got accepted for a festival in Buenos Aires too - I need to fill in the forms for that. Getting a bit blasé though as they are looking for subtitles and I am thinking 'ah fuck that '. An attitude that has been fuelled by the fact that at the same weekend in Oct will have Cats in Berlin, Genocide and Reservation in Vancouver and Cats and Internet in Ó Bhéal Cork.
I think that might be me done with poetry film festivals for this year.
But it is a fun medium.
And a pleasure to work with the wonderfully talented people who helped realise them all - Conor. Mark, Bruce and Eamonn. A lot of passion went into them cos there was fuck all money. I think Cats was the most expensive cos there were about ten people involved in that production. And I thought the least I could do was the feed the crew and wine them. For those of you who have not seen it already, here it is again...the magnificent version of I Love The Internet animated by Bruce Ryder. Only a couple of weeks old and has already accepted into two festivals. Will publicise the stunning spooky Cats one shot by Conor H once it has premiered in Berlin.
