The inaugural ‘SAF Shorts’ presents architecture as a storyteller and the narratives of the city. Screened in a newly opened public space yet to be announced, this signature evening event of the Sydney Architecture Festival brings a curated selection of local and international short films, documentaries and animations based on urbanity, architecture, the city and the people who inhabit it.

SAF Shorts is an opportunity for design enthusiasts, designers, city lovers, architecture lovers and architects to be delighted, educated and provoked. Filmmakers will be invited to present their films to the audience and prizes will be awarded on the night by a panel of guest jurors.

A cash prize of AUD1000 will be given to the best film of the night as decided by our panel of judges.

Films must be about Architecture or have Architecture at the core of its themes. Films must be no longer than 10 minutes in duration.
