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.

Spanish designer Jaime Hayón (born 1974) is a master of materials. Born in Madrid, he grew up with skateboard culture and graffiti art and studied industrial design before joining, in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy Fabrica, which he later led as design director. Since then, he has created copper and ceramic vases for Gaia and Gino; crystal-laden pendants for Swarovski; an upholstery, aluminum, metal, and wood chair for Established and Sons; and even shoes and interiors for Camper. In 2009, he took on London’s Trafalgar Square to create a giant chessboard with enormous ceramic pieces for the annual design festival. The sky is clearly his limits.

Studio Gang is a leading architecture practice whose design work addresses buildings, landscapes and cities. Founded by Jeanne Gang in 1997, the office has grown to include 35 full-time staff collaborating on national and international projects.
The studio acts as a lab for testing ideas on every scale, from cities to material properties. This sensibility is demonstrated by projects such as the Marble Curtain and SOS Community Center, which visibly engage with the distinct natures of marble and concrete, respectively, and the Aqua Tower in Chicago, which reconsiders the tall building as a site-specific structure. With a process that begins with research and exploration, the studio has produced a growing body of work that responds to its specific place and purpose.
Studio Gang has received national and international recognition for its innovative and sustainable designs, and was most recently honored with an award of High Commendation for the SOS Community Center at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona.
Ookieookie was started by Ryan Schmidt a Saskatoon based artist and designer. Ryan started by borrowing his friend's button maker and making buttons for his children Milo and Aidan to wear. People liked them and so he decided to start up Ookieookie as a place for everyone young and old to get enjoyable and simply designed products.
Ryan has been painting since high school and drawing all his life and thought that his portraits would make a great addition to the Ookieookie line-up. You may recognize Ryan's work from the Saskatoon Fringe Festival where he has set up a portrait booth for the past nine years with the exception of 2004 as his son Milo was born at the same time as the festival. You may have also seen Ryan at various dog shows, agility or flyball tournaments around western Canada.
