Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival 2020

Coming back in 2020 for its ninth year, the Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival has grown to be one of the largest architecture and design film festivals in the world.

Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival 2020

Having a film festival dedicated to architecture and design reminds us all just how much of a positive impact architecture, design and colour have on our everyday lives and encourages us all to embrace excellent design and strive for it in our own projects. We hope these films inspire you too.

Rialto Cinemas and Resene are once again partnered with Clearly & Co, who have curated the spectacular films since the 2017 line-up. Curator Clare Buchanan says, “These films engage us to examine societal, cultural, and environmental changes as they happen, and to contemplate the role of architecture and design in this context. We hope you enjoy this year’s line-up."

Check back in April 2020 for more details on films and screening times.
