F R A M E Y O U R S E L F The 8th Annual Downtown Film Festival L.A. Architecture and Design Series The series is about buildings, objects, artists and aesthetes and the emotional connections that tell their stories. It is also about the processes that create our real and imaginary worlds. It showcases Architecture through the creative process of the built and adapted natural environment, individual structures and their history, the form and it’s relation to and presence in cinema as a character and as a setting for other artistic expression. Design is explored through our relationships with beautiful and functional objects, the practical arts and skills within cinema and television production, progressive representations of visual art and finally graphic design in kinetic and static forms on screen and off. The festival will be held at Regal L.A. LIVE Stadium 14, A BARCO Innovation Center from September 21-28, 2016. The programming and related events at satellite venues are a mix of nostalgia, what’s new and what’s next, putting good use to DTLA and The Arts District as an experiential context. dtlaff.com /DowntownFilmFestival @dtlaff
