ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN FILM FESTIVAL:DC  AT THE NATIONAL BUILDING MUSEUM POSTPONED DUE TO COVID CONCERNS

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — December 21 — The Architecture and Design Film Festival (ADFF:DC), originally scheduled as an in-person event at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. from January 6 -8, 2022, has been postponed due to concerns about the escalating COVID pandemic.

Aileen Fuchs, President and Executive Director of the National Building Museum said, “We regret that we have to postpone the ADFF:DC but feel it is in the best interest for the health of our community. We want as many people as possible to experience these extraordinary films that spotlight innovation, leadership and critical community issues — like design and its impact on sustainability and social equity — that are signature topics in the Museum’s exhibitions and programming.  We will reschedule once we feel it is safe to gather in person, hopefully in the Spring.“
