AIA Film Challenge

The 2018 AIA Film Challenge invited architects and filmmakers to collaborate in telling stories of architects, civic leaders, and their communities working together toward positive community impact, creating a Blueprint for Better.

Participants produced, shot, and edited 3 to 5 minute documentary-style short films showcasing their Blueprint for Better story to win cash and experiential prizes, distribution at film festivals, and exposure on AIA’s online channels, as well as partner film and architecture organizations.

A panel of judges made up of architects and film/media professionals will select the Grand Prize Winner, the Runner Up, and the Third Place Winner based on the films’ adherence to the prompt, storytelling arc, architectural placement, and technical merit.
