Poetry will be brought to life through film in Canberra when the best films of the Poetry in Film Festival take to the screens the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia on October 10.

Hot off the heels of the Awards Night in Melbourne, Canberra is the first stop in PIFF’s national tour showcasing this year’s prize-winning films.

The Poetry in Film Festival (PIFF) aims to raise awareness and appreciation of poetry in popular culture while showcasing the talents of up-and- coming Australian independent filmmakers. Filmmakers were asked to interpret the poem Four Letters Three Words, by Belinda Hilton, into a four to seven minute short film.

A panel of well-respected judges from the film and poetry community will judge the films at the Screening and Awards night, including John Hughes, well known for his Australian political and historical documentaries, respected director, cinematographer and screenwriter, David Muir, and upcoming film director, Jessica Lawton, who made her debut with the award winning film, Morning Star.
