Northern Europe and Scandinavia's first International Architecture film festival, with live screenings, talks, debates and art installations. We are interested in short films that promote new ways of experiencing space and places or explore scenography and film aesthetics in an innovative way as well as films about urban social and environment issues. Longer documentaries related to urban and architecture issues are also considered mostly for our online selection.
As previous years we will in 2021 arrange outside screenings on buildings in the city as a complement to the inside screenings. The festival will also be partly available for an international public during a 24 hours-live streaming of the event with discussions around the films and with filmmakers. During the livestream the films will be, if possible, online during the screening. Some longer documentaries will be screened in our online selection and will be promoted during the festival as well.
In collaboration with the Swedish Association of Architects, Architect School Lund University, Lund Municipality, Skåne Culture and business.

    I was very impressed with the overall quality of the films at the Lund Festival. Well-selected variations on the theme of Architecture. My film,
    “A Visual History of The World Trade Center” wasn’t an obvious pick, but as a history of a building in its time and place I felt it belonged.

    I truly enjoyed the interaction with the organizers of this festival. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to visit, but the hospitality and love for architecture film was easy to feel even from a distance.

    Eventho the festival has become smaller due to the bad plague corona, it have shown an interesting journey from organic balconies, pure consumption, spagetti furnitures, verdi, transport... to soft horror, organic cars, noun, Una Furtiva Lagrima.
    The festival has conjured new insight and inspiration and I must in the end recommend this warm festival... Thx for everything ^^
