January 16, 2019

Our government might not be open but ADFF is and we're kicking off 2019 with a robust lineup of events — both domestic and international. First up, Festival Director Kyle Bergman will be speaking on a panel called "Get Reel: Exploring Truth and Narrative in Architectural Film and Photography" at the Interior Design Show (IDS) in Toronto on January 18.

Here are ADFF events already scheduled for 2019 with more to be announced.

This will be our second year in DC. Four days in three theaters including a theatre in the Great Hall of the National Building Museum where Sony will provide the projection equipment. To mediate the challenging acoustics, audience members will wear headphones like the ones used in a Silent Disco — a great way to see a film. We are proud to be working with our presenting sponsors — The National Building Museum and the Revada Foundation. Tickets are on sale
This is our second Short Films Walk:LA at Helms Bakery District. This year we will have eight participating showrooms with three films presented in each showroom. If you're feeling really ambitious, you can see 25 films! The event is free and by attending you're eligible to win free tickets to ADFF:LA.
ADFF:LA is now in its third year in dynamic downtown Los Angeles. Opening night will be the LA Premiere of Frank Gehry:Building Justice. Once again Pacific Sales Kitchen & Bath will be our presenting sponsor. Tickets will go on sale February 13th.
For the third year, ADFF will be presenting a film program at the annual AIA Conference on Architecture ( A'19), this year in Las Vegas from June 6 to 8. AIA has been a great partner with ADFF, and their annual short films competition, the AIA Film Challenge, continues to tell amazing stories of architects, civic leaders and communities working together toward positive community impact. Registration for A’19 is now open. Sign up and join us at the Blueprint for Better Film Series.
This will be our fourth year of ADFF:NOLA. We have moved the event from the end of August to the middle of June and have also moved the entire venue to the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans — a fantastic art museum. With our presenting partner, the Louisiana Architecture Foundation, we continue to expand the scope and scale of the festival.
This will be the sixth year of SFW:NY. The annual event in the Soho Design District continues to excite our growing and enthusiastic audience. 
This will be our second year of ADFF:ATHENS. With Greece being one of the seminal points of architecture in the world, it is an honor and privilege to host an annual event in Athens.
ADFF:NYC will be our 11th season of screening the best and most important new films about architecture and design. Submissions are already rolling in and will continue right up to our July 31 deadline. Every fall, ADFF:NY screens an entirely new selection of films selected from hundreds of submissions from around the world. To submit a film, go to or use Film Freeways. This fall, we'll be returning to the beautiful Chelsea Cinepolis with luxury seating in every theatre — a premium experience for everybody who attends.
This will be our inaugural festival in Canada and we're planning to launch ADFF:Vancouver November 8-11 at the beautiful Vancity Theatre. After last year's well-received kickoff screening of Strange and Familiar: The Architecture of Fogo Island, it's time to include Canada in our global screening schedule, and Vancouver is a dynamic city with a passionate design culture.
