About

International film and architecture festival

Since 2011, the Film and Architecture Festival is held as part of the Day of Architecture. Taking place each October in Prague and across the Czech and Slovak Republic, the festival has become an independent platform for discussions on architecture and urbanism based on screening documentaries, experimental as well as feature films. Its aim is to promote contemporary architectural approaches among the general public and present architecture as a significant part of our everyday life that requires appreciation and care. Moreover, it is important to introduce architecture from different viewpoints such as the artistic, social or environmental, and thus stimulate an interdisciplinary debate on architecture and the cooperation possibilities with other disciplines. A significant part of the festival’s activities is the initiation of short films on architecture by young Czech filmmakers that are introduced as part of the main programme of the festival.

 

The Film and Architecture Festival is the only film festival with the focus on architecture in the Czech Republic. Thanks to a strong partner network with architecture film festivals such as the Architecture Film Festival in Rotterdam as well as film festivals in the Visegrad region, it also has an international outreach. Every edition includes several curated film sections including a selection by the distinguished architecture theoretician Adam Gebrian, premiere screenings and special programme consisting of discussions, panel talks and exhibitions.
