Tickets for Jasmax Film Festival on sale now!


DATE : 09 August 2007
SUBJECT : Tickets for Jasmax Film Festival on sale now!


Celebrating architecture and the built environment will now be a lot easier as tickets for the 2007 Jasmax Film Festival go on sale.

This year’s festival, brought to you by Jasmax and NZ Home + Entertaining, will run from the 23rd until the 29th of August in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, Matakana, Tauranga, Rotorua, Havelock North, Palmerston North, Nelson and Arrowtown.

The stunning selection includes films from all over the world, giving people the opportunity to discover and learn about architecture in places that some may never have even heard of before.

The range of films has expanded from the traditional movies about architects. Movies such as A Crude Awakening – The Oil Crash, The Concrete Revolution and The Rural Studio acknowledge that architecture is about more than just designing great buildings, it is an architect’s responsibility to think about the impact that a building will have on the environment and the people who will inhabit it.

Fans of ‘traditional movies about architects’ will not be disappointed however, with this year’s festival featuring a line up of movies about such famous personalities as New Zealand architect Bill Toomath (Antonello and the Architect), Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning Renzo Piano (Renzo Piano – Piece by Piece), the fascinating Philip Johnson (Diary of an Eccentric Architect), America’s most profound and visionary architect John Lautner (The Spirit in Architecture) and Swiss architecture duo Herzog and de Meuron (Tate Modern and The Alchemy of Building).

In the four years that it has been held, the Jasmax Film Festival has expanded from two cities to twelve, an acknowledgement that it is not just people living in the big cities who are interested in architecture.

Greg Boyden, managing director of Jasmax says, “as the complexity of our towns and cities grow, the need to carefully consider the design of our built environment becomes crucial in creating places embodying the spirit of who we are.”
