Northern Europe and Scandinavia's first International Architecture film festival, with live screenings, talks, debates and art installations outside in the urban space. 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 environmental issues.

This year the focus is on remix. Please consider the rules to see if this is something for your film.

In collaboration with the Swedish Association of Architects, Architect School Lund University, Lund Municipality, Film i Skåne, Region Skåne and business.

ArchFilmLund Prize awards 2023 for the best film.

We accept for the festival:
* short films (under 15 minutes) all genres
* remix of films
* 3d Films and Artistic films as installations

This year we are trying a new concept and we ask you to answer if you accept your film to be remixed by us. In other words, this means that we will reinterpret it in a novel fashion. The original film will be screened in its entirety as well, but the focus remains on the remix.
How the remix itself will look is up to us, but to give you an approximate idea, it will range from being remelt with a building to an object or an interpretation being created in honor of your film. It is however not only images that are subjected to our reinterpretation: sounds and music may also be recycled and reconceptualized.
Please remember that when you send in your film you accept our interpretational right by default.

The festival is between October 14-15. We will not invite directors in person but it is possible to participate via link.

    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 ^^
