Ever since experimental filmmakers and critics starting theorising the concepts behind avantgarde visual explorations, the idea of poetry was seen as a fruitful model for the creative process of the more lyrical side of experimental film practices.

The concepts of ‘film poetry’ and the ‘film poem’ have been used on a number of occasions throughout the history of film by different filmmakers and theoreticians. Each of these writers applied their own understanding of what the film poem might be and rarely took different perspectives into consideration. Some use the term ‘film poem’, others prefer ‘cinepoem’, whereas some later writers seem to place importance in the existence of the hyphen between the words film and poem and hence talk about the ‘filmpoem’.
