Come be part of this innovative film series that celebrates the creative spirit of architecture and design. Selections explore how important both are to our everyday existence and how we engage with the designed world around us. The diverse partnership that makes these screenings possible and free also work hard to engage the audience with lively post-film discussion with film directors, local and national experts.

All films are free and open to the public, and all will start at 7 PM at the Salt Lake City Main Library Nancy Tessman Auditorium, 210 East 400 South.
