This festival focuses on the poetics of nature and environment, and will take place from on November 20, as well as virtually.

The Organizers:

The Poetic Phonotheque started in 2020 as an audio collection of poetry from all over the world which now counts with over 100 poems in the voice of their authors, in all languages.

In 2021, Kulturhuset Islands Brygge (Copenhagen, Denmark) became the official home of the Poetic Phonotheque, to house its audio collection and launched a second round of poetry open calls to collect audio poetry recordings in every language with the theme of climate, sustainability, nature, and our planet's preservation as the focus.
In 2021, Kultivera, a cultural organization in the city of Tranås, Sweden, also became headquarters of the Phonotheque for that country.

In 2022, the screening location of the festival is Husets Biograf, a cultural centre located at Rådhusstræ 13 in central Copenhagen, Denmark.

We invite you to submit your films on this important subject, whether they're animation, short film, poetry film, experimental, or documentaries. A focus on indigenous heritage is of interest.

Poetry films are invited to remain as part of the permanent video collection of the Poetic Phonotheque.

-All the video poems or films submitted in the poetry films category will be added to the permanent collection of the Poetic Phonotheque and screened in the various headquarters of the Poetic Phonotheque in Denmark and Sweden. By submitting your poetry film, you agree for it to be placed in the permanent collection. (This does not apply to films in other categories, which are only screened during the festival).

We're looking for films of a cultural nature with a focus on environmental conservation, nature, appreciation to our planet... and with a poetic angle.

The poetry videos submitted will be also added to the Poetic Phonotheque, an online archive that aims to document the poetry being created all around the world.

Absolutely no homophobia, racism, sexism or any discriminating messages. This is a festival of inclusion, tolerance and support for our communities, which aims to create awareness, entertain, and inspire the public.

    I am very grateful to the festival team for choosing my film. All my movie crew are happy too. Even under the influence of COVID19, movies are traveling across countries in this way.

    I find it significant that films with the same theme come together at the festival.
