Winnipeg’s ArchiShorts Film Competition now open for submissions

What stories do buildings and urban landscapes tell? How can movies be used to tell them? The Architecture and Design Film Festival (A+DFF) invites Winnipeggers to enter a short film competition. Registration for the competition is free and open to all. Make a two-minute movie about architecture or the built environment for a chance to win great prizes and be featured in the only film festival in Canada that is dedicated to architecture and design.

Architecture is everywhere. Get creative in showing how a place—any place—can tell a story.

1. Make a two-minute movie about architecture or the built environment using any mobile device such as a smart phone or a digital camera. Feel free to make it humorous or serious, informative or absurd.
2. Complete the registration form which is available online at http://adff.ca/archishorts/
3. Use WeTransfer to email the film and registration form to [email protected] by April 6, 2015
4. Come to Cinematheque at 100 Arthur Street to see a free screening of the winning entries on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 1:00pm

The competition has one category for adults and another for youth 18 and under. There is a maximum of two minutes per film and two films per filmmaker. A+DFF is not responsible for copyright clearance for images or music.

Movies must be titled and emailed to [email protected] by the April 6th deadline. WeTransfer (www.wetransfer.com) is a simple way to share files with no sign-up required. In the left message box, please enter the film title, filmmaker name, and age category.

Movies will be chosen by A+DFF judges. All participants will be e-mailed with results. As many entries as possible will be screened.
