Jasmax Film Festival

Last night I attended the opening of the Jasmax Film Festival '07 at the Penthouse in Wellington. The film screened was about Wellington Architect Bill Toomath entitled 'Antonello and the Architect'. It was extremely interesting and he would be someone I would love to have design a house for me. It looks at the important addition to his current house in Roseneath, and his previous work including a project he worked on at Harvard as a student in the '50s, as well as work he has done in the Wellington area ie the teachers college in Karori.

The film festival celebrate architecture, and is done in association with NZ Home + Entertaining.

Main Venues are:
Auckland - Academy Cinema
Hamilton - SkyCIty CentrePlace
Wellington - Penthouse Cinema
Christchurch - Regent on Worcester
Dunedin - The Academy Cinema

In Havelock North films will be screening at Cinema Gold.

If you have an interest in Architecture then these films "will inspire and motivate you to shape your places" (Greg Boyden, Managing Director, Jasmax Ltd)
