ADFF launches a virtual festival experience

From April 16th to 19th the Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF) will offer a virtual festival by screening one film each night, as well as a live introduction and special guests.

ADFF director and founder Kyle Bergman decided to launch ADFF:ONLINE as a way for the architecture and design community to remain engaged and experience several specially-curated films.

Following each film, ADFF will have a Q&A with the film’s director. For each program, there will be a $0.99 fee, which can be purchased by clicking on the link following the film description.

“We hope this online venue will serve as a virtual space for the professional design industry – and the broader community – to come together and learn about architecture and design,” says the organization.

The lineup will begin at 8pm EST and then replayed at 8pm PST:

April 16 – The Human Shelter
An epic, poetic journey investigating how we, as human beings, design and build our homes.
