The Architecture & Design Film Festival has announced its lineup of 2017 programming. The events will take place throughout the world, leading up to the ninth edition of ADFF’s main festival in New York, from November 1 to 5 at Cinépolis Chelsea. The events will be curated by the festival’s director, architect Kyle Bergman.
“We are thrilled to be expanding ADFF’s programming to new destinations across the U.S. and the world,” Bergman says. “The success of last year’s festival reminds us that great film has the power to bring people together to form new ideas, gain new perspective, and share common experiences. We are looking forward to another great year of architecture and design on the big screen.”
Among the programs are a Seoul exhibit, running January 10 to February 20, featuring films taken from the ADFF archive that correspond to categories including Pritzker Prize Winners, Residential Architecture, My Father Was an Architect, Women in Architecture, and Building Community. ADFF will also travel to the opening of Brooklyn design space A/D/O over January 27 to 29, for a festival themed “Utopia vs. Dystopia: Designing Our Imagined Futures.”
Other programs include a partnership with the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture; the second yearly ADFF New Orleans, in concert with the Louisiana Architectural Foundation; and the New York Short Films Walk.
