AIA Film Challenge: A Blueprint for Better

The 2018 AIA Film Challenge invites 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.

This is your opportunity to produce, shoot, and edit a 3 to 5 minute documentary-style short showcasing your 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. 

Submissions accepted June 18 until August 27. Registration is free.

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. The public at large will submit votes to choose the People’s Choice Award Winner.
