Cinecity is inviting submissions for 60-second films as part of a fringe event aligned with Material, the 2013 Australian Institute of Architects National Conference.

The brief calls for films exploring the architectural relationships between the material and immaterial, between the real and imaginary, between an idea and building. More detail here. Earlier Cinecity projects can be found here.

Selected films will be screened at Federation Square on 31 May at 6.30pm.  Deadline: 5pm EST 30 April 2013.

The selection of films to be screened will be made by a judging panel that includes: Bernard Tschumi, architect (New York); Michael Tawa, academic (Sydney); Shelley Penn National President Australian Institute of Architects; Jane Rendell, academic (London); Eduardo Kairuz; architect & filmmaker (Melbourne); Ricarda Vidal, academic + Betting on Shorts (London); Richard Sowada, Head of Film Programs ACMI (Melbourne).
