We were happy to partner with Global Playground Stockholm on their recent event on the topic of Tactical Urbanism in Sweden. We curated a selection of short films about tactical urbanism, here’s what they had to say…

“Thanks to short movies from New Urbanism Film Festival, we managed to broaden the scope of the event from local to international and get insights from other projects all over the world. The films gave the audience an inspirational boost, which will hopefully transform into more bottom-up initiatives in Sweden”

– Nina Tsutsieva, Global Playground Stockholm

Founded in 2013, the New Urbanism Film Festival (NUFF) has received hundreds of short and full length documentaries examining the urban landscape.  Josh Paget designed NUFF as a film festival with a purpose: to inspire people to make their city a better place.  Screenings at the festival have proven to be a very effective way to engage the public in conversations about urban design.

The full festival shows feature length movies as well as selections of short films based on the following categories:

  • Architecture
  • Healthy Cities
  • Urban Design
  • Bicycling
  • Street Art
  • Urban Farming
  • Economic Development
  • Tactical Urbanism Walkability

By hosting a NUFF event in your city, your organization can lead your community in exploring, examining, and evaluating urban design in your city.

Screenings can be adapted to fit your needs.  The selection will be curated by you and festival producer Josh Paget so that the screenings will be relevant to issues facing your community
