Curated & Hosted by Heather Haley
Pacific Cinémathèque and Vancouver poet, author, musician and media artist Heather Haley celebrate 10 years of Visible Verse! First presented at Pacific Cinémathèque in 2000, when the event was known as the Vancouver Videopoem Festival, Visible Verse is a special annual program devoted to video poetry (also known as poetry film or cine-poetry), a hybrid creative form that integrates verse with media-art visuals produced by a camera or a computer. This year, to celebrate its 10th anniversary, Visible Verse features an expanded two-day festival program made up of screenings (including both retrospective and current works), live spoken-word/poetry performances, and a panel discussion.

Mike Stark Says: One of the shows we’re doing LIVE every Wednesday night from the LA Radio Studio is “Nights At The Sound Table”. We will be doing our 31st show this coming Wednesday and in case you haven’t already checked out the program I wanted to invite you to give it a listen. In a world where there is talk radio and music radio, this show is a rarity in that it is a “talk show about music”. Our panelists, most of the time are just music fans, but occasionally we throw in a person of “note” to mix it up a little. Last week we featured John Spiker from Tenacious D and Trainwreck and this week we’re honored to have on our panel – world renown poet Ellyn Maybe. The show is hosted by Filmmaker, writer and music enthusiast, Kevin Poore and I produce the show. The way the show works is that Kevin throws out a “musical question” to the panelists and the chaos ensues. Two examples of the questions you’ll hear this week on the show are:
WHO IS THE GREATEST LYRICIST IN THE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC?
THE MOST PRETENTIOUS ROCK SONG EVER RECORDED IS…?
