Manuel’s fascination includes topics crossing over architecture, design, media, art and business innovations. This has taken him to develop two film and architecture festivals: ArqFilmFest in Santiago de Chile since 2012, and the Architecture Film Festival in London since 2017, hosting a successful international film competition unique to the UK.
