About the Film & Architecture Studio

The Film & Architecture Studio has proven to be one of the world’s most relevant courses in the field of film and architecture. The studio is a practice-orientated course that focuses on cinematography as a way of exploring the built environment. Participants – sociologists, historians, writers, urban designers, planners, architects and activists – will discover the essential elements of filmmaking and learn how to relate them to the city and to architecture.

The focus will lie not so much on the technical aspects of filmmaking and post-production, but rather on film as a way of structuring your thoughts and turning your findings into a captivating story: filmmaking as a research tool to gain a better understanding of your urban surroundings.

Course dates and programme

6 until 14 September, with additional online meetings on Wednesday 18 and 25 September

The Film and Architecture Studio is a one-week course, with collective activities in Rotterdam spread over two subsequent Fridays and Saturdays and one Wednesday evening in between. In this period, you will develop a concept for a short film of around two minutes; you work out a script, shoot footage and make a first draft. Filmmaker and curator Jord den Hollander and the team of the Independent School will provide you with input and inspiration, and together with the other participants we’ll discuss everyone’s progress.

Participants get the opportunity to present their short films at AFFR and to attend the opening on 9 October 2024. In preparation to the festival, we offer one more (online) opportunity to receive feedback on your progress on 18 and 25 September.

About Jord den Hollander

After having finished his master’s in architecture at the Technical University of Delft, Jord den Hollander followed a course in scenario writing at the Filmschool in London. Throughout his career he has often combined both disciplines. He has made documentaries about art and architecture, has written and directed internationally acclaimed television series for children about art and science and he was one of the founders of AFFR, the world’s biggest architecture film festival, which he co-founded in 2002. In addition, he has designed a unique oeuvre that includes an architecture center for children in Almere, a mobile kid’s library, a floating hotel and a tensegrity bicycle bridge.
