Arquiteturas is the first international film festival in Portugal to screen documentary, experimental, animation and fiction films about architecture.
The festival focuses on the growing global interest in interdisciplinary approaches to contemporary architecture. It uses the power of moving images as a tool for broadening public understanding and appreciation of architecture. The festival presents relevant documentaries, fiction and experimental films that expose both Portuguese and international contemporary architecture as well as the permanent dialogue between city, space and narrative. Besides screenings we have several parallel activities that enhance architecture multidisciplinary such as informal talks, presentations, workshops, photography exhibition, networking sessions, installations, a bookshop and guide tours.
The first edition of the Arquiteturas Film Festival Lisboa was held at the Cinema City Alvalade, 26th to 29th of September, 2013.
