FESTA: Urbanized

An outdoor film screening for FESTA’s closing night.

Urbanized is a documentary about the design of cities that looks at the issues and strategies behind urban design and features some of the world’s foremost architects, planners, policymakers, builders, and thinkers.

Over half the world’s population now lives in an urban area, and 75% will call a city home by 2050. The challenges of balancing elements such as housing through to environmental policy are fast becoming universal concerns. Yet much of the dialogue on these issues is disconnected from the public domain.

Who is allowed to shape our cities, and how do they do it? Unlike many other fields of design, cities aren’t created by any one specialist. There are many contributors to urban change, including ordinary citizens who can have a great impact improving the cities in which they live. By exploring a diverse range of urban design projects around the world, Urbanized frames a global discussion on the future of cities.

Directed by Gary Hustwit (2011), 85 Minutes, English/Spanish/German/Portuguese language with English subtitles.

Bar opens at 6pm. Limited capacity. Bring a cushion or deck chair!

Thanks to Gary Hustwit for his permission to screen Urbanized during FESTA.

(This is a part of the FESTA 'Urban Visions' programme)
