Architect Africa Film Competition
The Architect Africa Online Film Competition was conceived early in
2013 by the Architects Collective in acknowledgement of global trends
around generating film content. Since the first Architect Africa Film
Festival (AAFF) in 2007, the organisers have been aware of a pressing
need for new content that documents South Africa’s built
heritage, and platforms the built environment issues in
developing countries. The intention is to generate content on the
built environment in South Africa, Africa, and cities around the
world facing similar conditions to ours.
The project intention is to maximise the exposure of people to
architecture, through relevant film content and the creative use of
space for showing these films. A selection of the top films from
the Online Film Competition will be screened at a AAFF Film
Festival, held at UIA 2014. The competition is open to everyone
interested in communicating their ideas on their cities, architecture
and built fabric.
