The Festival is held as part of the Day of Architecture, both of them celebrate World Architecture Day. Taking place each October in Prague and across the Czech and Slovak Republic, the festival has become an independent platform for discussions on architecture and urbanism based on screening documentaries, experimental as well as feature films. Its aim is to promote contemporary architectural approaches among the general public and present architecture as a significant part of our everyday life that requires appreciation and care.
Moreover, it is important to introduce architecture from different viewpoints such as the artistic, social or environmental, and thus stimulate an interdisciplinary debate on architecture and the cooperation possibilities with other disciplines. A significant part of the festival’s activities is the initiation of short films on architecture by young Czech filmmakers that are introduced as part of the main programme of the festival.
