Dear Friend 
The Architecture and Design Film Festival’s newsletter will keep you informed  and updated about what’s being planned, when it will happen and who’ll take part in film festival events.

Chicago - May 5 - 9,  2011

Chicago will be the next host city for the Architecture and Design Film Festival taking place this spring. The film programs slated for Chicago will have much in common with our inaugural festival in New York last October but with a new opening night film and a fabulous new line-up of speakers for our panel discussions and Q & A’s.

New York - October 19 -23,  2011


The festival will return to the Tribeca Cinemas in New York this October with a completely new selection of feature length films, documentaries and shorts. Plus, there will be lively discussions with filmmakers, architects, designers and other industry leaders on a variety of topics about the design process, architecture in film, and the brilliant designs we see and use every day.  



The Architecture and Design Film Festival is an annual event that celebrates the creative spirit of architecture and design through a dynamic program of films, panel discussions and Q&As with filmmakers, architects and designers.
