• About us •

ARCHIBA is an international short film festival that looks to explore the emotional architecture of fourth-dimensional space by charting the infinite social, cultural, and historical geographies of the modern metropolis as they appear within the minds of the artists who inhabit them.

This new and innovative project focuses on the relationship between the individual and their environment, offering emerging and established filmmakers alike the opportunity to reflect upon how the diverse landscapes of contemporary urban life inform the collective conscious of humanity as a whole.

There are as many opportunities for experimentation in format as there are in terms of story when submitting to ARCHIBA. So whether a participant’s

interests lie in narrative filmmaking, documentary, music-videos, performance art, or screendance, we encourage a bold and innovative approach when relaying one’s impressions on a theme.

What was conceived as a means of connecting a diverse range of urban thinkers, artists, communities, ARCHIBA’s multinational and multicultural programme of content will be screened at various international cultural venues, in cities such as Buenos Aires, Berlin, Santiago de Chile, and Istanbul.

By spreading out across the globe, we hope to bring communities together; highlighting connections in urban space through a shared love of film.
