Urban films in the heart of Copenhagen

URBANE is a cultural project for all interested in architecture, urban planning, documentary films, cultural events, networking and creating resilient community in Copenhagen.

The screenings are taking place on eight selected Wednesdays at Gloria Biograf. The event is targeted for dispersed groups of city enthusiasts, such as architects, planners, students from different universities, professionals, nationals and internationals, improving their network in the Nordic capital of sustainable living.

Dialogue and networking is an overall goal of the project, when the community shares ideas, concepts, experience and have an opportunity to integrate between disciplines, universi- ties and fields that in the end shape our urban space.

According to the dictonary URBANE means: belonging to the city, related to town; having the characteristic of social life in major cities. On that note join us for films, discussions and networking right in the heart of the city.
