The Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF) is presenting an offering of films both online and in-person throughout the 2021/22 season, with festivals and screenings in New York, Toronto, Vancouver, DC, Cairo, and online.
The 13th edition of the festival encompasses a wide array of stories, to paint a portrait of architecture and design around the world. The 20 films present the work of iconic architects and designers from Bruce Mau to Frank Lloyd Wright; weave together stories of heritage and preservation, natural landscapes, and the beauty of light in relationship with architecture; inspire social and environmental progress through design; and capture the transformative power of art.
Some of the films will be screened in person in New York, Toronto, and at the festivals in Vancouver and DC. Many of them will also be available for home viewing as part of ADFF: online.
