In a fringe event aligned with the AIA’s 2013 National Architecture Conference, CINECITY is now inviting 60-second film submissions that address the conference’s ‘Material’ theme, exploring the architectural relationships between material and immaterial, real and imaginary, and between ideas and buildings.

Films submitted must be a continuous shot (i.e. no editing) of 60 seconds maximum, filmed with handheld cameras (telephone cameras are permitted) and must not involve introduced props, post-production or technical effects including titles and credits.

Selected films will be revealed at a screening at Federation Square on 31 May 2013. Founder Louise Mackenzie and artist Sarah Breen Lovett will curate each of the judge’s top three films on the night. The judging panel includes New York architect Bernard Tschumi; academic Michael Tawa (Sydney); National AIA President Shelley Penn; academic Jane Rendell (London); Melbourne architect and filmmaker Eduardo Kairuz; London academic and founder of Betting on Shorts Ricarda Vidal; and Head of Film Programs at ACMI in Melbourne, Richard Sowada.

Submissions close 30 April 2013. For more information or to submit, click here.
