The New Urbanism Film Festival is an annual four day event that takes place in Los Angeles every fall. The festival screens short and feature length films on the topic of the built environment. The festival also includes walking tours, bike rides, art walks, and foodie tours that get audiences out on the town and exploring the city in fun new ways.
Josh Paget and Joel Karahadian founded the festival in 2013 as a way to take the conversation about urban planning beyond the classroom, out of the council chambers, and on to the silver screen. Since then the festival has travelled the world, hosting smaller-scale screenings in Austin, Buffalo, Dallas, Detroit, Fresno, Milan, Olympia, Oxnard, Salt Lake City, Shenzhen, Stockholm, and Venice.
The 5th annual New Urbanism Film Festival will take place in Los Angeles, October 19-22, 2017.
