Urban View

urbanview2_plakat_bezbelki-04URBAN VIEW

A city must be con­stant­ly analysed and cre­at­ed anew, so that it lives up to the expec­ta­tions of its inhab­i­tants. A film is an excel­lent tool to close­ly exam­ine the urban fab­ric, analyse its con­di­tion and the direc­tions in which it is heading.

In 2015 the Urban View was one of the com­pe­ti­tions of the Short Waves Fes­ti­val. Since 2016, the project was extract­ed and devel­oped as a sep­a­rate event. The Urban View is not only a com­pe­ti­tion of short films. The project itself stim­u­lates action of the urban fab­ric through work­shops, films screen­ings with dis­cus­sions, or a unique Urban Walk. All these events are not only aimed at ini­ti­at­ing a dia­logue about archi­tec­ture and the city in which we live, but also at stim­u­lat­ing action and devel­op­ment in the area start­ing from the clos­est sur­round­ings, regard­less of its form e.g. plant­i­ng, or mod­ern solu­tions to com­mu­ni­ca­tion problems.

A city as a phe­nom­e­non deserves spe­cial atten­tion. There­fore, thanks to the Urban View we move to places that pose cru­cial ques­tions about the qual­i­ty of life in the urban jungle.
