Register for the Second Annual I Look Up Film Challenge

Register today for the second annual I Look Up Film Challenge in collaboration with the American Institute of Architects. This film challenge builds on the success and momentum of last year’s spectacular entries to once again challenge filmmakers to share the stories of architects transforming communities and the world through the power of design.  It’s time two great storytellers came together – filmmakers and architects – to shine a light on the innovative design work being done all over the country. Register to compete for up to $5,000 in prizes and the chance to see your film premiere at the Architecture and Design Film Festival and SXSW Eco. Learn more and join the challenge.
