The fourth annual is part of the  AIA’s “Blueprint for Better” campaign. It’s an initiative that highlights the collaborative work of architects and civic leaders to solve some of the biggest issues facing cities today. The AIA Film Challenge premiered in June with the organization’s new film, “Caño Martin Peña: A Blueprint for Better,” which depicts the rebuilding efforts of an architect and community leader in Puerto Rico following last year’s devastating Hurricane Maria that left more than three million people without power. Ms. King’s production company Long Lake Media has several projects in development and is currently adapting the Sara Shepard novel series “The Perfectionists” for TV at Freeform (2019). Her experience and eye will be a great addition to the judging team!

It’s an initiative that highlights the collaborative work of architects and civic leaders to solve some of the biggest issues facing cities today. The AIA Film Challenge premiered in June with the organization’s new film, “Caño Martin Peña: A Blueprint for Better,” which depicts the rebuilding efforts of an architect and community leader in Puerto Rico following last year’s devastating Hurricane Maria that left more than three million people without power.

If you would like to submit a documentary to the Film Challenge all participants should produce, shoot and edit the three to five minute documentary to tell a story about architects working with civic and community leaders to make a positive impact. Submissions for the Film Challenge—due by 8:59 p.m. EST on Monday, Aug. 27—will be subject to two rounds of judging. The first round of winners will be selected by a panel of jurors from the media, architecture and film industries. A second round will be open for public voting to choose the “People’s Choice Winner.” Last year’s People’s Choice competition yielded more than 268,000 votes. Participants will have the chance to win a $5,000 grand prize that includes distribution of the film through a multitude of channels, including screenings at the Architecture and Design Film Festival on Oct. 16 in New York in addition to travel and accommodations. The “People’s Choice Winner” will receive a screening at the Chicago Ideas Festival. Other finalists will be awarded a $500 prize.

Complete details are available on AIA’s Film Challenge website. Films from previous Film Challenge finalists can be watched online.
