AIA Film Challenge 2020

The AIA Film Challenge is a back for its sixth year! Hundreds of architects and filmmakers will again pair up to tell stories of how architects and civic leaders have collaborated to mitigate the impact of climate change in their communities.   Participants will produce three- to five-minute documentary films for a chance to win prize money and a trip to see their winning film screened.

 

Prizes

A panel of judges made up of architects and film/media professionals will select the Grand Prize, Runner Up, and Third Place winners.
There’s also a People’s Choice Award for the film that receives the most votes online.
