      Split This Rock: Call for poetry films and videos

      Deadline: postmarked by January 30th, 2008
      Entry fee: $15.00 (non-refundable)
      Notification by February 15th, 2008
      Festival dates: March 20th-23rd, 2008

      Poems of Provocation & Witness
      Poets have long played a central role in movements for social change. Today,
      at a critical juncture in our country’s history, poetry that gives voice to
      the voiceless, names the unnamable, and speaks directly from the individual and
      collective conscience is more important than ever. The festival will explore
      and celebrate the many ways that poetry can act as an agent for change:
      reaching across differences, considering personal and social responsibility,
      asserting the centrality of the right to free speech, bearing witness to the diversity
      and complexity of human experience through language, imagining a better
      world.

      Film & Video Submissions:
      We are looking for artistic, experimental, and challenging film/video
      interpretations of poetry that explore critical social issues. Selected work will be
