The 2019 Resene Architecture and Design Festival kicks off

01 May 2019

Celebrating its eighth year, the Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival has grown to be one of the largest architecture and design film festivals in the world.

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 – and Resene hopes these films inspire you too.

This year, in addition to showings in Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch, there is a week-long festival in both New Plymouth and Havelock North as part of the festival line-up.

Catch festival films nationwide in:

Auckland (02-19 May 2019) @ Rialto Cinemas
