The Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF) is returning to the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto this November for the 2023/24 season and 15th anniversary of the event.

The Canadian festival in Toronto will be taking place from Nov. 1 to 4, 2023, and will be showing documentaries about architecture and design from around the world.

The programming team has selected 19 films for this year’s festival which include include Best in the World, a film confronting the stark inequalities within modern Copenhagen, The Power of Utopia – Living With Le Corbusier in Chandigarh, a cinematic perspective on the utopic modernist city, and My Architect, a title familiar to most and which will have its 20th-anniversary screening at the festival.

The ADFF will also feature new films including one on B.V. Doshi, who passed away earlier this year, and another on Geoffrey Bawa that takes a different angle than the Bawa film that was shown last year.

Some other films being shown in Toronto include Radical Landscapes, Emotional Architecture 1959Modernism, Inc.Point Of OriginVeinsTerraFormaSkin Of Glass and more.

The ADFF has also planned more post-screening Q&As, conversations, and panels this year.
