Attention design and architecture enthusiasts: the Architecture and Design Film Festival (ADFF) returns November 9-12, this year presenting 20 documentary films and shorts from 13 different countries, along with several special guest speakers. 

Be sure to check out Arthur Erickson’s Dyde House, a short film on famed Vancouver architect Arthur Erickson’s hidden masterpiece in the aspen parkland of Alberta. The film takes a journey through Erickson’s history, and recounts other architects battle for this undiscovered home’s future. Trevor Boddy, architectural critic and the co-executive producer, will be in attendance leading a panel discussion after the film.

And we can’t forget about My Architect, playing on November 11. It’s the 20th anniversary of the film’s release, with a newly remastered version. Follow director Nathanial Kahn as he takes watchers on a journey of identity, art, and exploration of life—with some hilarious moments too!,

Grab a friend and plan your visit to the Hollywood Theatre and VIFF Centre to celebrate and learn about design in architecture, sustainable solutions for housing, cultural impacts, and inspiring journeys of design visionaries.
