Information about the events for Architecture and Design Film Festival

ALICE STREET tells the story of the creation of a monumental public mural in downtown Oakland, California, and the fight to protect the mural and the neighborhood’s cultural heritage from upscale housing development. The film is touring the country to spark discussions about issues like displacement, equitable development, cultural preservation and the value of public art.

During the impact tour, Alice Street has been screened by multiple AIA chapters and the San Francisco NOMA chapter. Powerful dialogues about city planning and urban design practices have taken place in these settings. The film was also featured at the 2021 Seoul International Architecture Film Festival, the Urban Planning Conference in Calgary, and the Better Cities Film Festival.

As part of the selection by the 2022 Architecture and Design Film Festival, Alice Street will be shown in six cities around the US and Canada (dates below).

Here are ways that we welcome NOMA chapters to be involved: We are inviting NOMA members to attend Alice Street screenings and join the dialogue that will focus on local projects and issues.

We are inviting 1-2 guest panelists from local NOMA chapters to speak about local initiatives or projects related to themes in the film. (Stipends are provided). Local chapters can also co-promote screenings as membership activities. We have marketing materials and are hoping to engage the broader NOMA community.

Specific screening dates have not been released yet, but these are the festival dates in each city:

New York City: Oct. 1st and 2nd, 2022 Toronto: Nov. 2nd-5th, 2022 Vancouver: Nov. 9th-12th, 2022 Los Angeles: Jan 19th-22nd, 2023 Washington, DC: Jan 26th-29th, 2023 Chicago: Feb 2nd-5th, 2023 We would like to reach out to local NOMA chapters about participating in panel discussions in each of the host cities.
