Fourth Annual Architecture and Design Film Festival Opens in NYC on October 18

Festival features more than 25 films from 11 countries, 4 public programs, and an architectural driving tour of Lower Manhattan.

Now in its fourth season, the acclaimed Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF), the nation’s largest film festival devoted to the subject, returns to Tribeca Cinemas, in New York City, on October 18 – 21, 2012. The four-day Festival includes a diverse line-up of more than twenty-five films from eleven countries, accompanied lively discussions with filmmakers, architects, designers, and industry leaders. Tickets go on sale October 1.

The films in this year’s Festival consider a range of topics, including visionary architects both contemporary and historic, the creative design process, architecture as cultural emissary, the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site, the creation of the High Line, and modernist architecture on the East and West Coasts, among other subjects. The Festival features two world premieres, two U.S. premieres, and numerous films shown in New York City for the first time.

Festival Founder and Director Kyle Bergman states, “There is a natural connection between film and architecture: Designing a building and making a film both require a balance between art and science, both tell stories and both are labors of love. Moreover, the ability of film to convey three-dimensional space and objects makes it an ideal form for the exploration of architecture and design.”

October 18–21, 2012, Tribeca Cinemas
