At FIRST+MAIN FILMS, we want better. Better cities, towns and neighborhoods. So we launched a Film Festival. Better Cities Film Festival collects, curates and presents the very best films on the theme of making better cities, towns, and neighborhoods.

Films screen at our flagship festival in Detroit, Michigan, and at the UN-Habitat Better Cities Film Festival at the World Urban Forum, the world’s premiere conference on cities.
