The Film & Architecture 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.
In recent years the studio has proven to be one of the world’s most relevant courses in the field of film and architecture. A new aspect is the timing, because this year’s event takes place in June, during Rotterdam Architecture Month. That gives participants more time before their film premieres at AFFR in October.
Schedule: 2, 3, 7, 9, 10 + 26 & 28 June
