AIA Film Challenge 2020

The AIA Film Challenge 2020 invites you to share stories of architects, civic leaders, and their communities working together to design a healthy, sustainable, and equitable world.

This year, instead of 3- to 5-minute films, we’re asking for 60- to 90-second Mini-Docs that you can produce from any device. More updates coming soon!

 

Prizes

A panel of judges made up of architects and film/media professionals will select the Grand Prize, Runner Up, and Third Place winners.
