NYCxDESIGN, New York City’s annual celebration of design, will take place May 10th - 22nd with dozens of events throughout the city. This year ADFF will be participating at both BROOKLYN DESIGNS and the Industry City Design Festival by WantedDesign.

May 10-12
Brooklyn Navy Yard
Building 77 - 15th Floor

BROOKLYN DESIGNS tickets are free for press & trade and $15 for the general public.

ADFF has curated a selection of three short films that are all connected to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The films will be shown throughout the day in between the scheduled panel discussions in the BROOKLYN DESIGNS Theater. The three films are:
Brooklyn Farmer — a film by Michael Tyburski which explores the unique challenges facing Brooklyn Grange, a group of urban farmers who endeavor to run a commercially viable farm within the landscape of New York City. You can look down onto the rooftop farm from BROOKLYN DESIGNS.
Traces — a film by SITU Studio with Patrick Mandeville. It follows artist Duke Riley and Creative Time who housed 2,000 pigeons in the Brooklyn Navy Yard on a repurposed naval ship. The pigeons were each outfitted with LED ankle bands and they put on a spectacular aerial performance.

Studio Visit: Gaetano Pesce — a short visit to Pesce's studio in Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The Human Shelter
2018 / 59 min / Denmark / NY Premiere

Location: Industry City 

ADFF, WantedDesign, Industry City and Consulate General of Denmark present the New York premiere of Boris Bertram’s latest film, The Human Shelter, an epic, poetic journey investigating how we, as human beings, design and build our homes. The film explores the concept of the "home" and how humans express themselves creatively within that sacred space, whether it’s a lagoon settlement in Lagos, a refugee camp in Iraq or a six square-meter dwelling in Tokyo.

Part of IC Design Festival by WantedDesign, the event will take place May 16th in Courtyard 5/6 of Industry City right next to 
Distillery Row and some fabulous food vendors. Come kick-start summer by heading over early, trying some of the delicious, locally-made food and drinks and enjoying the panel discussion and film en plein air.
