The ADFF will feature 29 in-person screenings (and virtual showings, too)!
Now that we're back to (double-vaxxed, passport-in-hand) in-person movies, It's been great to have our cultural calendars filling back up againand the 2021 Architecture and Design Film Festival Vancouver is tops on that list for this week.
The last (and first Canadian) in-person ADFF was really a great chance to connect with other architects and designers in attendance, and I expect after nearly two years apart, we'll see the same this week.
The festival runs this week from November 10 to 13, and will spotlight both Canadian and international designers. Opening night kicks off with Mau, a documentary about Canadian designer Bruce Mau, with a central feature on his massively popular 2004 Vancouver Art Gallery exhibit Massive Change.
Indigenous architects are spotlighted on Thursday, November 11including one of our favourite architects, Douglas Cardinalwith From Earth to Sky. Form and Place: Arthur Erickson is a short film contemplating buildings from the iconic PNW designer, and it includes an interview with him along with shots of his best work.
I'll be introducing Breuer’s Bohemia on Thursday, November 11. The iconic designer, known best for his Bauhaus furniture designs, was also a residential architect. The film surveys the houses he designed in the suburbs of New York City, Connecticut and Massachusetts from the 1950s through the '70s, many of which were commissioned by politically progressive clientschiefly Rufus and Leslie Stillman and Andrew and Jamie Gagarin.
I'll be down at the theatre, but there'sa virtual component too: each film as a virtual screening in tandem with the in-person.
Tickets for the festival start at $15 and you'll find more details on all of the films at that link, too (including a great one on Frank Lloyd Wright narrated by Brad Pitt who will¦ not be in attendance).
All screenings qualify for AIBC Continuing Education Credits for architects, and student rates apply. (Youve also got a chance to win tickets in our contest).
