I Look Up Film Challenge: Architecture As A Solution


It’s our pleasure to announce the 2nd annual Look Up Film Challenge, calling on filmmakers and architects around the country to collaborate to tell important stories of architecture changing lives and meeting challenges.


This year’s theme is Architecture As A Solution. Filmmakers will explore the way architects work with communities to find innovative solutions for problems of all sizes. The story of Rural Studio is an inspiring example for filmmakers interested in participating in the
challenge. Watch now to see the film challenge theme in action.

This architecture program has used design to transform the town of Newbern, Alabama.Teachers and students work closely with residents to find innovative, low cost solutions to the town’s biggest challenges, including designing and building an urgently needed firehouse.Submissions will be judged by a panel of respected architecture and media professionals. Your vote counts too – we invite our audience to choose the film that moves and inspires them most for the Public Choice Award. Winning entries can earn cash prizes and screenings at influential,forward-looking festivals including SXSW Eco and the Architecture and Design Film Festival. Registration is now open and ends July 10, with an entry deadline of August 14. Winners will be announced in September. Learn more and register for the challenge at
