The seventh edition of the international open-air architecture film festival has a focus this year on the topic 'Critical Care. Repairing the Future'.
The four film evenings in the Az W courtyard are dedicated to the role of architecture and urbanism in times of man-made climate change and increasing social polarization. Where is architecture part of the problem, and where does it demonstrate new approaches? Are there alternatives to an architecture dominated by capital and to the exploitation of resources and labour? Parallel to the exhibition ‘Critical Care. Architecture for a Planet in Crisis’, the films present trend-setting projects as well as critical perspectives on ecological and social imbalances. Documentaries and short films from numerous international submissions are compiled into an entertaining and informative programme that invites the audience to actively participate in the discourse.
Jury Open Call: Lene Benz, Karoline Mayer, Marlene Rutzendorfer
