Back to the Future 8th May Conference Videos

The Tears in the Fence one-day conference on Saturday 8th May 2021 promises a dazzling selection of readings and conversation and we greatly look forward to welcoming you.

In between our sessions, we would like to offer this video intermission. You will find below a list of poetry films that has been collated by the festival team. In between sessions and after the festival, please feel free to continue your poetic explorations by dipping into as many of these as you like.

This blog post is a collaborative space. We invite you to add comments with recommendations of any poetry films you think should be a part of this list.

Warmest wishes,

The Tears in the Fence Festival team.

Special thanks to Andrew Henon for collating this list.
