Poetry Film Live: a new way with poetry is a UK based webzine which publishes poetry film, performances, readings, essays and reviews. It is also the platform for Elephant’s Footprint online poetry film training.

The History

Poetry Film Live was founded in early 2017 as a platform for poetry film, essays and interviews. It was furloughed for a few months from the end of 2019 so that the editors could focus on the development of poetry film in the UK. Poetry Film Live came back in 2020 with a renewed focus on the type of poetry film that could be considered a literary form. Poetry Film Live also responded to the changes that came about during the Covid19 pandemic and the resulting changes to poetry gatherings, in the short and longer term, and included in its remit well filmed performances and readings of poetry.
