Film is movement and sound, light in contrast to darkness. We are looking for visual film that is poetic, not in rhyme of word but in character and story.
Film with a full script, or silent with music, we want the art that moves us, inspires and motivates within a 10 minute run. Show us your best!
Crossings Poetic will also combine voices in a recorded reading of a poetic script written to be placed on top of the silent film category winners. Allowing for a true crossings of artists, talent and content. This Crossing will only happen with 100% approval of the silent filmmaker.
Crossings Poetic has a substantial actors pool to call on for the recording of a poetic script written for the winners of the Short Silent film category.
We will work together with winners to ensure an end product meets our artists standards. If they desire this option for their silent film.
We will also use our actors on film to potentially twist one story around the short films that will be selected, should the film artists agree to a CROSSING of film into feature.

Short Silent Film finalists will have an opportunity to have their film matched with a poetic script and recording by professional actors. That recording will be woven into the film and screened at these events. A true crossing of art inspired by art. If they opt out, the original silent film will screen at our events.
We hope to hold a semi-annual virtual festivals, but are focusing more on our annual LIVE festival all finalists will be screened. We will also make every effort to involve the artists to discuss their art.
The first annual live Crossings Poetic International Film Festival will be held in Madison or Milwaukee Wisconsin July 2022.
This live film festival will cross award winning film and live poetry readings with music, food & drink.
The foundation of the live event is a CELEBRATION of artists, talent, work and CROSSINGS!
ALL winners in each of the four quarterly virtual festivals will screen at the live annual festival.
Obviously the benefit of being able to screen at a festival are the connections you gain. All finalists who screen at the quarterly events will be given a free pass and be able to meet live, and share a crossings of art in person. A film festival with a social to follow. We also hope to offer a filmmaker brunch as a thank you to all participants.
