On the 29th of June, Thursday, at 7 pm, Circo de Ideias hosts a conversation about the various relationships between Architecture and Cinema. For the conversation, Magda Seifert and Pedro BaĆ­a welcome the guests Giovanna Borasi, director of the Canadian Center for Architecture [CCA], and Francisco Ferreira, architect, teacher, director and co-editor of the magazine JACK – Journal on Architecture and Cinema.

“Where Life Happens”, the theme of the 10th edition of Arquiteturas Film Festival, reflects on architecture beyond the built form. The idea that architecture is capable of transforming cities and societies is widely accepted, but it is the actions of the people who inhabit and give meaning to architecture that carry the greatest weight in these processes. In its 10th edition, Arquiteturas Film Festival harnesses the power of moving images as a tool for promoting architecture. As well as film screenings, the festival programme features talks, tours and installations, which act as a springboard for more in-depth discussions of the themes and research behind the films. Arquiteturas Film Festival is organised by Instituto and directed by architect Paulo Moreira. Founded in 2018, Instituto is a Porto-based platform for discussing and disseminating architecture and its intersections with the visual and spatial arts, critical thinking and interdisciplinary collaborations.
