Nature and Culture: International Poetry Film Festival

This fall, Copenhagen will enjoy its first almost fully unrestricted cultural autumn since the pandemic started. This means, we are returning to galleries, museums and concerts, and enjoying a time of outdoor life, friends and interactions we all have missed. Yeah, there’ll still be some requirements for everyone to be safe from the pandemic, but this is a great time for reconnecting through culture in the city.

Kulturhuset Islands Brygge, home of the Poetic Phonotheque, celebrates the occasion with its first ‘Nature and Culture: International Poetry Film Festival’, a screening of films on the subjects of nature, environement and culture, with a focus on poetry.

Now accepting video submissions for the festival:
Documentaries, animation, short films, experimental and poetry films are welcome to the open call for this festival. Submit yours today via FilmFreeway:

The selected films (and audio poems) received for the festival will be documented in a publication to celebrate the occasion, in the form of an anthology book. If you have any questions regarding this event, please write to

*Please remember that audio poems are always welcome, in any language, on any topic, to the collection by clicking on submit and recording your poem, but we are currently encouraging the submission of content connected to the theme of nature and environments.
