More on the film screening

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects in partnership with the National Museum of Australia and LA+ Interdisciplinary Journal of Landscape Architecture, invited the submission of 3–4 minute short films on the general subject of the new epoch of the Anthropocene. The finalists have been preselected by the judges for public screening at the Not In My Backyard Outdoor Screening at the National Museum of Australia, Canberra on 28 October 2016. The ultimate winner of the $10,000 prize money will be determined via audience participation at the screening.

The 8 shortlisted films were selected from over 140 international entries and explore ideas of identity, the future, increased urbanisation, technology and environmental change. The shortlisted films range widely in genres; some are in a documentary style, other use animation and some used parody and humour. Together they provide a fascinating insight into how different people from different cultures are thinking about this big topic.

The 8 finalists include:

Fortunate Isles: Landings – Jacob Rivkin (USA)

Cáustico – Joshua Ashish Dawson (USA)


What Are You Doing? – Neeti Nayak (USA)

The Architect – Tiffany Hoy (NSW, Australia)

La graine – Theseed – Adèle Millet-Lacombe and Mégane Millet-Lacombe (France)

A submission to the enquiry into the death of an architect – Robert Nugent (ACT, Australia)

The Anthropocene is a meditation about time – Sam Hinton, Andrew MacKenzie, Wu Hao and Su Elin (NSW/ACT, Australia & China)
