3RD ISTANBUL INTERNATIONAL
ARCHITECTURE AND URBAN FILMS FESTIVAL
5-11 October 2009
The Chamber of Architects of Turkey (CAT) has been conducting a highly involved struggle aimed at developing the architectural culture, protecting the historic heritage and improving the quality of life since its inception in 1954 till our present day. In order to add a new dimension to these efforts, it has been decided to initiate a new organization from 2007 onwards under the title of "Istanbul International Architecture and Urban Films Festival". It is the objective to ensure an active participation of everyone who is interested in the sphere of films, most of all the architects.
This festival is being planned within the context of "Celebration of Architecture and City" realized by the CAT Istanbul Metropolitan Branch for the "World Architecture Day", which is celebrated jointly by 1,200,000 global members of the Union of International Architects (UIA) annually on each first Monday of October.
As is well known, the Chamber of Architects of Turkey had successfully hosted the "22nd World Congress of Architecture" of the UIA in Istanbul in July 2005. This highly successful organization had been much appreciated in the world and had received very favorable press coverage.
This festival aims at sponsoring films produced on the subject of architecture and city, encouraging new productions, and exposing admirable examples of films to the audiences. Additionally it foresees to prepare the environment for the meeting together of the architects, the film directors and other experts in Istanbul within the context of this activity, consequently to introduce the concept of architectural culture to wide sections of the public.
Documentary and animation films will be allowed to compete within the scope of the festival. The submitted films shall be eliminated through a preliminary screening and those that are selected shall enter into a competition. At the same time numerous discussion sessions and other activities shall be programmed in order to provide an interchange of ideas among the participants.
The deadline for application is 15 August 2009.
Each of the best documentary and the best animation films shall be awarded 5000 Euro prize.
