Call for student films: WOMEN ARCHITECTS 1MIN Film Project


Architexx seek 1 to 2-minute student films about women. This project will continue the efforts to write women into architectural history, this time via video.

Women Architect 1MIN Film Project Chairs seek to have the subjects of these 1-minute films be about women architects, defined expansively. These are women who were educated as architects, or educate others to become architects. Women from wide and diverse practices, demonstrating the myriad ways women trained as architects have participated and continue to participate in the built environment and design related fields. For example, these could be women who spent their careers at large or mid-sized or small firms, in City Planning departments, as sole practitioners, as educators, historians, as landscape designers, as well as those who go on into other design-related industries such as interiors, exhibition design, film, production design, art installations, gaming, fashion, to name but a few. This project seeks to demonstrate that women have been vital to the practice of architecture for decades, while radically under recognized. This project works with other global efforts to change that!

The following question must be included in your film: What about this architect's work has inspired / impacted / influenced you or you learned from?

Film Review + Screening process: Each of the finished films will be reviewed by an esteemed jury of architects, design professionals and industry leaders. A selection of the films will be publicly screened during New York City’s Archtober month-long focus on architecture and will be available online once they have screened.
