We are thrilled to announce the launching of the second edition of the Barcelona International Architecture Film Festival, BARQ. An initiative of the production company NIHAO Films with the support of Fundació Mies van der Rohe, ARQUIN-FAD and Col·legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya.
The BARQ Festival is a film festival aimed at vindicating films on architecture as a specific genre and at deepening the relationship between architecture and the seventh art. Cinema uses architecture to show and create worlds that explore social realities, and architecture uses cinema to encourage reflection on the most current issues regarding the spaces we inhabit.
The festival will celebrate its second edition from May 10th to May 15th 2022, within the framework of Barcelona Architecture Week, in person and in online format, with an extensive programme that includes a selection of national and international documentary films as well as a variety of parallel activities (talks, debates, workshops, conferences).
If you have filmed a feature film or a short film with a topic related to architecture or you are about to finish it, you can take part in the BARQ call. Your work could be in the Official Selection of the BARQ Festival 2022. Check the rules and register your film until 21 January 2022.
