  • We are big fans of this of this long-running festival, which is much broader than the videopoetry competition. We really like their eclectic and adventurous selections, and we applaud their vision of poetry as deeply connected to social issues and engaged in contemporary debates. We are honored to be part of this.

    Different circumstances due to the pandemic this year, but HVA was very accommodating and handled projects with care. Communication was easy and straightforward. This is a small and great festival celebrating short and poetic films from across the world. Thank you HVA for a nice and worthy experience.
