Adaptation, interpretation or illustration - how to convert a poetic image to a filmic one? Filmmakers translating the latest National Poetry Competition-winning poems into visual form answer the question with a swirling charcoal animation, a tableau of Lego men and a choreography of dancers and fallen leaves.

Filmpoem makers James William Norton, Helmie Stil and Sarah Tremlett will screen all ten NPC films at the Poetry Café this October. NPC poets Sam Harvey and Laura Scott will bring the poetry – join them all for a lively reflection on the filmpoem-making process.

The ten films were commissioned by Alastair Cook of Filmpoem for the Poetry Society. is an artists’ moving image project committed to delivering education and community projects as well as producing and promoting the work of poets, filmmakers and composers.

Turn down the house lights and settle your popcorn: the screening is about to begin.
