Hi all- These were submitted to my blog recently. I am taking it on good faith that they have no entry fee. If you notice a fee, donation or other aspect that I might not have noticed, please let me know. Also- I am still receiving film links from individuals to distribute films. Unfortunately, I cannot promote, distribute or submit these to festivals for you for free.

best of luck,

9th Budapest Architecture Film Days 11/15/16
Do you live in a building? Do you watch movies? Good reasons to join us on the first weekend of March! Do you have a film on architecture or the city? Send it to us! The Budapest Architecture Film Days is now accepting submissions for its 9th edition, to be held in Budapest in March 2017. We are looking for works in all genres, forms and lengths related to design, architecture and built environment. The mission of the film festival is to generate a dialogue between architectural practice that finds inspiration in cinema, and cinema borrowing its subjects from architecture and the city.
