The American Institute of Architects (AIA) launches a new film challenge inviting filmmakers and architects to team-up to produce short films that demonstrates architectural solutions. Winners will be announced in September 2016. To learn more, visit: ilookup.org/filmchallenge

Submissions will be judged by a select panel of AIA members and media professionals. Winners will receive cash prizes and will have their film screened at the Architecture & Design Film Festival and SXSW Eco Conference.

Last year, the I Look Up Film Challenge garnered 26 short films, with one grand prize winner, “My City Listens,” two runner-ups, and a People’s Choice award. The 2016 Film Challenge kicked off with the debut of a short documentary film on Rural Studio, Auburn University’s community-oriented, design-build program dedicated to improving the western Alabama region with good design. With a population of 184, Newbern, Ala. has been positively affected by Rural Studio’s projects through the innovative design and construction of a much-needed fire station and library.
