Arquitecturas is the first international film festival in Portugal to screen documentary, experimental, animation and fiction films about architecture. Since 2017the festival is held in conjunction with the Lisbon Architecture Triennale, officially integrating its program.
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. It showcases 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 activities that enhance architecture multidisciplinary such as informal talks, thesis presentations, masterclasses, workshops, installations, exhibitions, a bookshop and guide tours.
