The Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF) has updated its 2021-22 season to follow a hybrid format, presenting full festivals, private film previews, pop-up screenings, and its virtual program, ADFF:ONLINE.
The new schedule allows for ADFF:ONLINE to take place earlier in the year, kicking off the NYCxDESIGN festival. Originally scheduled for January 2022, ADFF:ONLINE will now take place from November 17 to December 3, which will be available to audiences in the United States.
The virtual program will feature ADFF’s full roster of new films for the 2021-22 season, with insightful looks into indigenous architecture, sustainable design, design visionaries from Bruce Mau to Marcel Breuer. Each film will showcase special introductions and Q&As from the filmmakers and film subjects.
Available to view on demand from any device, or with Apple TV and Roku TV, ADFF:ONLINE offers audiences the ability to tune in anytime, anywhere. The festival will run through the Thanksgiving weekend and offers an opportunity to enjoy a roster of films with family and friends during the holiday.
On October 22, ADFF will host the premier in-person screening of Benji & Jono Bergmann’s “MAU” at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) with Bruce Mau, Bisi Williams, and the filmmakers in attendance for a Q&A. “MAU” is a feature-length documentary about the design visionary and will be featured at all festival locations and select ADFF virtual screenings.
The complete ADFF:2021-22 program and its roster of films and in-person screenings will be officially announced in September. ADFF is still planning in-person events, starting with ADFF:DC on January 6-9, 2022.
