Vision has no boundaries.
The International Poetic Short Film Festival is dedicated to the great Puerto Rican Activist, Poet, Actor, Playwright and Humanitarian, Bimbo Rivas. IPSFF will be held Mondays October 5, 12, 19 and 26, 2009 at The NUYORICAN Poets Café located at 236 East 3rd Street New York, NY 10009 "Poetic Film is a combination of expressive image and sound. It is original and personal. It need not be about poetry and yet, it can be set to poetry. It is lyrical, dreamlike, expresses new ideas, evokes emotion, triggers thought and heightens spirit. If we are fortunate, Poetic Film may some day be uncovered for us to discover." The International Poetic Short Film Festival is committed to maintaining the visionary standards set forth by great filmmakers e.g. Buñuel, Fellini, Herzog, Hitchcock, Kurosawa, Kubrick, Bergman, Lang, Welles, etc. We aim to encourage the Artists to remain true to their vision while holding out against the clutches of commercialism. Our hope is to retain the power of film media to move the spirit, expand the mind and inspire social change. We welcome you to the poetry of film to see, listen and experience the spirit of the remarkable.
