The ninth international open-air architecture film festival presents prize-winning films and new discoveries on the subject of land-use in rural and urban spaces.

The extinction of species. Flooding. Erosion. Land is becoming increasingly scarce and the call for a land policy for the future is growing louder. What might a careful approach to land and the soil look like for humans, fauna and flora? What about the consumption of water, land and forest? Who suffers the immediate consequences of this scarcity today and how can we counteract the longer-term impact?
A selection of documentaries and short films presenting projects with potential for the future and critical stances, from numerous international submissions. The open-air festival is an opportunity for film and architecture enthusiasts to hang out and swap ideas.
