“Motionpoems” screens at library March 29







— In conjunction with the 20th anniversary of National Poetry Month in April, Bud Werner Memorial Library in Steamboat Springs will present a community screening of “Motionpoems,” an interdisciplinary art experiment where contemporary poetry meets film, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 29 in Library Hall.

"Motionpoems" consists of a selection of innovative short films that include poems by award-winning and lesser-known poets adapted by filmmakers from coast to coast.

Minneapolis-based Motionpoems was founded in 2008 by filmmaker Angella Kassube and poet Todd Boss. It is a nonprofit arts organization with a mission to produce short film adaptations of great contemporary poems and expand poetry's audience. Film artists work from completed poems and are given free rein.
