“The submission requirements were brilliant in their precision and yet allowed for some very successful and imaginative works both in content and in filmic concepts.” Architect  Bernard Tschumi

“The Cinecity Architectural Film Project has been a wonderful and playful opportunity for architects to explore and express their ideas about architecture through film.  In the constrained format of 60 unedited seconds, it has both invited and tested entrants to exercise their capacity for innovation and vision, with some outstanding results.” President of the AIA  Shelley Penn 

“We are very excited to have the Cinecity Architectural Film Project screening during the 2013 National Architecture Conference. Like cinema, the design process for architecture requires us to lure our clients in to ‘the suspension of disbelief.’ Built form, for all it’s material qualities, relies heavily on visual effects and atmosphere, perhaps this is why French filmmaker and writer Rene Clair once noted ‘The art that is closest to cinema is architecture.’ We look forward to seeing the outputs of artists, architects and film makers that will suspend our disbelief on what material in architecture might mean.” Directors of National Architecture Conference 2013 Sandra Kaji-O’Grady & John de Manincor
