Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival 2015

91a4b62b0b528da42499fb8aff16da60This came in this morning, belatedly. Slight marketing glitch; NZIA Southern who normally helps market the festival doesn’t appear to have been notified by the festival organisers. Anyway, get along to what’s left of the viewing programme !!!

The fourth annual Resene Architecture & Design Film Festival will showcase acclaimed and current films in architecture and design, including furniture, industrial, graphic, urban and landscape.

The festival will play in four locations this year with Christchurch being welcomed as the fourth city in the festival.

Auckland, Rialto Cinemas Newmarket, 7-20 May
Wellington, Embassy Theatre, 28 May – 10 June
Dunedin, Rialto Cinemas, 11 – 21 June
Christchurch, Academy Gold, 25 June – 8 July

Tickets for the festival are on sale now.

Rialto Cinemas has partnered with Clearly & Co, who curated the films for this year’s line-up. Curators Tracey Lee and Clare Buchanan say, “As New Zealand faces urban growth and renewal on an unprecedented scale, it is an important time to fuel the conversation. We hope this fusion of films stimulates a dialogue and opens minds to the possibilities for architecture and design in our lives, communities and cities.”

This year’s festival has been grouped into themes, so audiences can navigate towards stories they are most curious about. “We have brought together 22 films from all over the world, with everything from epic tales of architectural icons and visionaries; fascinating insight into experiments in urban and industrial design; intimate glimpses into spaces and communities; and celebrations of rooftop gardens and garden lovers. The festival is also hosting an In Memoriam event with Athfield Architects for Ian Athfield, who we lost earlier this year.”

Naming rights sponsor Resene Marketing Manager Karen Warman says Resene is once again delighted to be bringing the festival to New Zealand with Rialto Cinemas. “Before the last festival finished, we were already getting requests for it to come back again. The Resene Architecture & Design Film Festival is such a unique opportunity for everyone to indulge their interest in, and love of, great architecture and design. The films are thought provoking and celebratory. Resene has a long history of supporting New Zealand architecture and being a part of this festival helps to remind us all how important great design is.”

Late… designer xmas cards

Tweeted by Dezeen magazine:

http://www.dezeen.com/2010/12/24/designer-christmas-cards-3/

These are part of the reason I can’t bear to visit Dunedin stores selling Christmas cards anymore – the locally supplied standard of design is SHOCKINGLY BAD AND INANE and the pricing is TOTALLY THE WORST RIP OFF IMAGINABLE.

There. I feel better now.
