Festival: Arquiteturas Film Festival
6th - 10th June 2018, Lisbon, Portugal
DATE: 6/6/2018
"ARQUITETURAS returns, starting this year, in June and with fiction as a novelty. Learning From Fiction is the theme of the sixth edition of the only international film festival in Portugal dedicated to stories of our build environment and the people who live in it.
Architecture is always about creating fiction. But what happens when fiction clashes with reality? Not only film but also architecture has a fine line between fiction and "reality". Is creativity at stake if architecture chooses to engage more with "reality" than with fiction? Up to what extent should architecture engage socially? Is that relevant? The films we have selected aim to contribute to generating some reflection about these questions. Ultimately, architecture by creating fiction defines our reality. It is a powerful skill that should be used wisely."
