March 24, 2022 – March 26, 2022

The National Building Museum will again partner with the Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF) to produce and host the event March 24-26, 2022 in Washington, D.C. ADFF:DC will offer 12 feature length and short films from around the world that explore a range of timely issues, including innovation and creativity in sustainability, equitable development, historic preservation and adaptive reuse, as well as the important contributions of indigenous architects and the dynamic nature of design leadership.  ADFF:DC  also offers the first complete in-person program of the present film series in the U.S., after pandemic precautions disrupted previous events in New York and Los Angeles earlier this year.  View full press release here.

Architects and designers highlighted in this year’s festival range from icons like Frank Lloyd Wright and Marcel Breuer to lesser known architects who are making their mark around the world —  including Juha Leiviska, Finland’s most successful contemporary architect, and the British Sarah Wigglesworth, whose design work focuses on impacting positive social change.  Film subjects also include dynamic artists, like architectural installation designer Dani Karavan from Israel, and the irreverent Tim Carey of Judson Studios, based in Los Angeles.  In addition to film screenings, the ADFF:DC includes live Q&A with film directors and subjects, including James Crump, director of Breuer’s Bohemia; Nathan Havey, director of Beyond Zero; and Dorte Mandrup, subject of the film Another Kind of Knowledge.

The Architecture & Design Film Festival:DC is presented with the Revada Foundation of the Logan Family. Other sponsors include: CoStar Group, Design Foundry, Room & Board, Bonstra | Haresign ARCHITECTS, and Dr. Lawrence Spinelli.
