Get Your Tickets To The #NewUrbanismFilmFestival!
October 9, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We are super excited to announce our newest partnership with The New Urbanism Film Festival (NUFF), an organization concerned with how we design our cities and the effect on residents living and working in those cities. “Safe sidewalks and open spaces encourage healthy lifestyle habits for ourselves and our community.” NUFF kicks off their fourth season, with a series of screenings, tours, discussions, and events throughout the city, ending with closing night awards and festivities on October 9th at Helms Design Center.
We will serve as a hub of festival activity, with several excursions departing and returning to the Helms Design Center. Three events will take participants on urbanism adventures:
- a group bike ride along the Ballona Creek Bike Path; riders will experience the river’s renaissance first hand; the ride ends with a tour of the Playa Vista neighborhood given by architect and urban designer Stefanos Polyzoides, one of the designers of the project and one of the founders of the New Urbanism,
- a second excursion takes participants on a train trip from the Culver City station to Downtown Santa Monica; the group will get an up close look at design principles of Downtown Santa Monica from the city manager himself, Rick Cole, and
- a third group tour will go on a relatively short bike ride around Culver City, touring current and future bicycle related projects.
Other events include workshops inside Helms, games, and BUSted the storytelling show featuring true tales told by people who don’t drive in LA.
