    Architecture & Design Film Festival Debuts In LA

    arch-design-film-festival-fagus-walter-gropius.jpgA film on Fagus Factory by Walter Gropius will appear in LA's Architecture & Design Film Festival.


    From March 12-16, The Architecture & Design Film Festival will expand to Los Angeles after a successful five years in New York. The Los Angeles Theatre Centre will host the film festival—the nation’s largest devoted to architecture and design—and feature 30 full-length and short films. The schedule includes international and local perspectives; panel discussions with leading design critics, architects, and educators; and a Hennessey + Ingalls pop-up bookshop.


    To honor the festival’s new location, ADFF will highlight Southern California’s dynamic architectural heritage with films like The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat, a documentary of Neutra's house for a working-class employee in Lone Pine, California. The festival also includes films from design icons like Massimo and Lella Vignelli, Paul Smith, Tadao Ando, and Paolo Soleri. Look out for Q&As with personalities behind the films including Kyung Lee & Eugene Tssui (TELOS: The Fantastic World of Eugene Tssui), Aimee Madsen (Paolo Soleri: Beyond Form) and Christine O'Malley (If You Build It).


    Founded by architect Kyle Bergman in 2009, the Architecture and Design Film Festival’s mission is entertain and educate on the connectivity between film and architecture. With festivals in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles, ADFF celebrates the creative spirit that drives design with films, events, and panel discussions.


    "The festival is [now] a truly national event," says Bergman. "On one hand, LA is the most obvious choice for its deep connection to film and rich culture of design; on the other hand, it's the most challenging due to the physical nature of how far the city spreads. We hope that our downtown LA venue will attract people from all corners of the city, to join in a lively and meaningful dialogue about design."
