Here at Urbis, we love films. We also love architecture and design, not to mention good food and lavish hotel suites. So naturally, we can’t wait for the upcoming Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival (May 7-July 8) which serves as a great excuse for us to combine several of those passions. In fact, we’re so excited about the film festival that we’re giving away three amazing prize packages including: one night’s accommodation, dinner for two at some of our favourite eateries and film festival tickets in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington.
