Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival

Thank you to everyone who attended the Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival in 2021.

Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival 2018

2021 bought with it two celebrations. It's 10 years since the Resene Architecture & Design Film Festival first started and when we look back over all the films that have been screened over the years, it's a veritable feast of architecture and design ideas – stimulating, thought provoking and inspiring. And this year's festival promises to continue that tradition.

The second milestone we're celebrating this year is Resene's 75th birthday.

Like so many good Kiwi ideas, the story of Resene started in a garage in 1946. And since that time, as Resene has grown, we have been continually energised and inspired by the architecture and design community with suggestions for paints, stains and colours that have grown Resene well past Ted's original vision. It was the design community's desire for more colour that led Resene to create a new system of colour in the 1960s that greatly expanded the colour options available. Not only did this enable the design community to bring more colour to their projects, it also made colour accessible to all.

Thanks to the Rialto Cinemas and Clearly & Co teams, the Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival has grown to be one of the largest architecture and design film festivals in the world. It's our privilege to be part of a festival dedicated to architecture and design that celebrates cutting edge design and architecture, inspiring ideas and so much more. It's a much cherished opportunity for us to provide inspiration to all those who inspire us.

Check back in April 2022 for an update on the 2022 festival.
