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.

    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 ^^

    I was thrilled to have my short, The Closer You Look, selected in 2020. I only wish I could have attended in person.

    As a filmmaker invited by the festival in 2018, going to Lund was quite a great experience. In this very peaceful city, I had the opportunity to meet very interesting people, filmmakers, artists, architects and even broadcasters from Sweden, Finland and other European countries. We had a wonderful time before and after the screening, taking the time to have deep conversations about how to film cities in relation with architecture and environment. The festival staff gave me a very warm welcome, and I really appreciated this cozy, friendly and nearly family atmosphere. I wish I had more time to watch the other films in the attractive program of the festival, and I am already looking forward to the festival's next edition. Thanks to all the staff and do not hesitate at all to send your films to ArchFilmLund!
