Kiosk Gallery & Comma Films.

Archaeology by Lisa Risbec & poetry by Gaia Holmes.

Spent a great afternoon yesterday down at Urbis watching "showreel" which was slide shows from various North West photographers organised by The Kiosk Gallery & also short films from Comma Films. Many of the photographers have been featured here on this blog before. In fact in the case of Julian McKenny, David Dunnico and Seba Kurtis very recently.

I'd not got a clue though about Comma Films or Comma press until yesterday. Comma Press is a not-for-profit publishers who concentrate on innovative poetry and short stories who have already made a bit of a name for themselves, described as "Trailblazing" by The Arts Coucil. Now if you put that kind of writing together with some great young film makers well you get something special.
