Architecture and Design Film Festival (ADFF): 2022/23 Season

The 2022/23 season of the Architecture and Design Film Festival (ADFF) returns to the big screen this fall! The Festival's fourteenth edition will offer a diverse selection of films from over eleven countries, demonstrating the impact of design on numerous industries including fashion, real estate, art, architecture, urban planning, and housing. 

The season will kick off with ADFF:NY (September 28-October 2), followed by ADFF:Toronto (November 2-5), ADFF:Vancouver (November 9-12), ADFF:LA (January 19-22), and ADFF:DC (January 26-29), with additional festival cities to be announced. 

The Festival's virtual offering, ADFF:ONLINE, will be available for US and Canadian audiences from February 8-17.

Now in its fourteenth edition, the event, which is popular with all design lovers, will showcase a diverse program of films that investigate design's impact, environmentally and culturally, on the worlds of fashion, real estate, art, architecture, urban planning, and housing. The program features a curated selection of inspiring films and talks that offer insights into the lives and works of global design visionaries and will include films from over eleven countries, including Finland, Denmark, Brazil, Greece, and Italy.

ADFF:22/23 will showcase six U.S. premieres and the world premiere of Robin Hood Gardens, a German documentary on the challenges of preservation. 

The Festival will open with Fashion Reimagined, an inspiring documentary that explores Mother of Pearl designer Amy Powney’s trajectory as she sets out to create a collection that’s ethical and sustainable at every level, from fiber to finished garment. 

Other design luminaries include legendary Dutch architect Winy Maas, Danish design pioneer Grethe Meyer, and Finnish artist and one of the first designers for Marimekko, Maija Isola.

In each city, the films will be preceded by introductions from special guests and followed by insightful Q&As with the filmmakers.
