Look back on the online Film & Architecture Studio 2020

After a successful first edition, from 10 November 2020 till 5 January 2021 AFFR and the Independent School for the City have joined forces again to organize an online version of the Film and Architecture Studio. The Studio was supervised by curator and filmmaker Jord den Hollander and supported with contributions by DOP Erik van Empel en filmmaker Hans Christian Post.

Look back on the online Film & Architecture Studio 2020

Now taking place online, the Film and Architecture Studio offers a comprehensive way to use cinematic language in architecture and urban design. It was a hands-on studio that focuses on learning and understanding the narrative of filmmaking as a way to explore the built environment. Participants in this course are introduced to the essential elements of filmmaking and will learn how to relate these to architecture and the city. The focus of the studio is not so much on the technical aspects of filmmaking and postproduction, but rather on film as a way to structure thoughts and to turn findings into a gripping story. Participants in this course were asked to explore the physical surroundings in times of Corona.
