The Architecture + Design Film Festival kicks off 14th edition
The Architecture and Design Film Festival is launching a roster of films demonstrating the impact of design on numerous industries including fashion, real estate, art, architecture, urban planning, and housing.
ADFF has been bringing the Festival to Toronto and Vancouver for many years and the team has shared this year’s program, which includes 15 films from 10 countries (three of those films being from Canada). Tickets will go on sale on October 19.
ADFF:Toronto, presented by Eventscape, will be at the TIFF BELL Lightbox once again from November 2-5. Opening Night will feature the Canadian premiere of Fashion Reimagined, an extraordinary film about the intersection between fashion, design, and the built environment, exploring how one person’s passion can impact a global community.
The filmmaker, Becky Hutner, is from Toronto originally and will be attending the premiere to take part in a discussion following the film. There will also be an afterparty at a’cme directly afterwards. In addition to Opening Night, the Toronto Society of Architects is collaborating with the Festival to curate lively and inspiring conversations following a number of the films.
ADFF:Vancouver, presented by All in Pictures and Vancouver Special, will be at VIFF from November 9-12. Opening night, however, will be taking place at the beautiful art deco Hollywood Theatre, with a pre-screening party beginning at 6:00pm.
ADFF will screen two films that were created in Vancouver, the first about legendary architect Richard Henriquez and the second, Outside In, which features Vancouver architects like Michael Green in conversations about biophilic design. Closing out the Festival on Saturday night there will be a celebration hosted at VIFF. A number of wonderful conversations will be announced soon, joining the panel led by Urbanarium following the screening of Robin Hood Gardens, which had its world premiere at ADFF:NY.
