Founded in 2013, by a musician and a stand up comedian, the New Urbanism Film Festival celebrates urban planning from the pedestrian perspective.  The annual four day event in Los Angeles showcases short and feature length films submitted from around the world.  The festival also hosts interactive events around the city that get audiences exploring, experiencing, and examining the built environment in fun new ways.  The Third Annual New Urbanism Film Festival just finished its Los Angeles run in October of 2015.  The winning short films will be screened again at the Laemmle Theatres in Santa Monica during the month of January.  The festival will also host a Best-of-Fest presentation in Detroit during the 24th Annual Congress for the New Urbanism in June of 2016.
