ARCHIBA is a film festival looking for short films that explore the relationship of the individual with the spaces they inhabit, the architecture and urban landscapes of the world and urban life.
Archiba's mission is to be a small mirror of life in contemporary societies, its rhythms, its pulses, how cities from all corners of the world look and feel, and thus generate a starting point for collective reflection.
The short films, music videos, videoperformances and screendance films can be linked to different themes and formats, such as: biographies, documentaries, fictional stories, audiovisual self-portraits, portraits of the urban landscape, of architectural spaces, of social conflicts, diversity, migratory issues and other realities of life in community, ecological impact, self-sustainable development.
