The Vienna Poetry Film Festival cooperates again and again with partner festivals. The International Poetry Film Festival of Thuringia appears as an up-and-coming poetry film festival in Germany. As a special program, their curated special show "Women in Resistance" is now coming to Vienna.




The program "Women in Resistance" demonstrates how much poetry films and video poetry are part of a global poetic activism. Hardly any other topic has shaped the submissions to the 2020 Weimar Poetry Film Prize as much as this one. A poetic act in a reality structured by hegemonic masculinity is a radical act of resistance. Women in Resistance consists of 14 video poems, written and directed by women, whose aesthetic and thematic diversity immerse us in sensibilities and gazes that explore the relationships of being a woman in and with the world.
