About the Regeneration Film Festival
The five short films have been selected by a panel of expert judges from the Regeneration Film Festival hosted at Ecobuild. The event also doubles up as an Award evening where the winner from the Festival will be presented a prize by urban regeneration specialists Igloo.
The Regeneration Film Festival was originally launched by Jonathan Porritt from Forum for the Future in 2013 at the sustainable built environment trade fair Ecobuild. It was opened here in 2014 by RIBA President Stephen Hodder and the films were screened in a temporary cinema constructed from over 1000 honey-comb pieces of recycled cardboard designed and built by Make Architects.
