Time for the Resene Architecture & Design Film Festival

Time for the Annual Resene Architecture & Design Film Festival


Rialto Cinemas and Design Onscreen are pleased to announce that the annual Resene Architecture & Design Film Festival is back for its third consecutive year.


This festival is now the second largest architecture and design film festival in the world. It’ll be playing in Auckland (8-21 May) at Rialto Cinemas Newmarket, Wellington (29 May-11 June) at the Embassy Theatre and Dunedin (12-22 June) at Rialto Cinemas. Tickets for the festival are on sale now.


Design Onscreen is a non-profit organisation that produces, distributes and preserves high-quality films on architecture and design. Executive Director Heather Purcell Leja says, “After a hugely successful year last year, we’re excited to be involved in this year’s festival to help bring architecture and design films to a New Zealand audience.


“This year we’re bringing 19 films from 11 different countries to screens in Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin. The content ranges from Japanese art, to town planning and even fashion design.”


Rialto Cinemas Group Manager Kathryn Bennett says that she is delighted that the festival is returning for 2014.


“We are excited to be bringing this festival to audiences for the third consecutive year. Rialto Cinemas is committed to running this festival annually, so it is very pleasing to be able to present such an extensive selection of films to showcase architecture and design from around the world.”

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.

“The Resene Architecture & Design Film Festival was so well received last year that it was a natural decision to bring back the festival with unique international films this year. Resene has a long history of supporting New Zealand architecture and design and we're always looking for ways to support the industry and provide new innovation and inspiration.

“Having a film festival dedicated to architecture and design allows everyone involved in, or interested in, architecture and design to immerse themselves in films that they may not get to see otherwise. The fusion of films will help fuel new ways of looking at things, new ideas and new inspiration.”


This year’s festival gold partners are Cavalier Bremworth, GIB, HOME and NZ Wine Society.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
