MOVING SPACES

A Symposium Exploring the Expanded Field 
of Architecture & Moving Image

22 – 23 September 2017

Auckland, New Zealand

SYMPOSIUM

Moving Spaces is an interdisciplinary symposium that will bring together academics, practitioners and researchers to address the expanded field of architectural filmmaking.  

The context for the symposium is the substantial rise in the number of filmmakers engaging with architecture and the built environment. While the growing number of international architectural film festivals is just one indicator of a wider public interest in architectural filmmaking the implications for critical engagement within architectural discourse and design are still in the early stages of being thought through. Indeed the very terminology of architectural filmmaking could be examined in light of exploring who is making the films, for what purpose and for what audiences.
