International film and architecture festival

The Czech festival Film and Architecture is held as part of the nationwide festival Day of Architecture, celebrating World Architecture Day in October. It is organised by NGO Kruh. Although the festival centre is in the capital city Prague, it takes place throughout the Czech Republic and Slovakia (with echoes in Berlin and other Czech Centers around Europe). The festival was held in 2002 for the first time. Despite some intermissions over the years, in 2015 it became an independent platform. Through screening documentaries, experimental movies, and feature films, the festival aims 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. Every year the festival presents more than 20 movies produced from all over the world supplemented with a rich accompanying programme which includes discussions with the filmmakers or art performances. A significant part of the activities of Day of Architecture is the initiation of making short thematic films by young Czech filmmakers.


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 premiere screenings and special programme consisting of discussions, panel talks and exhibitions.
