The acclaimed Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF) is crossing the border for the first time this year, and adding two Canadian cities to their roster, including Vancouver.
We caught up with organizers, Leah Mallen of All In Pictures and Anne Pearson, at Anne's interior design shop, Vancouver Special, to find out what's in store for real estate and design lovers.
See the video below and, as always, enjoy the audio-only experience on Apple Podcasts or whereever you listen to your podcasts.
Tickets start at $14 and are available on Eventbrite or buy direct from Vancouver Special, located at 3612 Main Street, Vancouver.
Highlights of some of the great films showing:
Through the lens of graphic design, Design Canada follows the transformation of a nation from a colonial outpost to a vibrant and multicultural society. In the 1960s and 1970s, an innovative group of Canadian designers, used design to unify the nation. Directed by Greg Durrell.
Friday Nov 8 @ 8:30 pm w/talk Organized by the Graphic Designers of Canada
A Poetics of Living tells the story of The Open City (Ciudad Abierta), a utopian community just north of Valpriaso that was founded by Chilean architect Alberto Cruz and the Argentinian poet Godofredo Lommi. Initiated in 1971, the community of architects, artists, poets and dreamers have created a sense of community and a collection of eccentric buildings. Directed by Damien Faure, and Caroline Alder.
Temporality and age are inherent in every object and creature and, depending on one’s outlook, may transcend to infinity. How can this be imagined? What goes beyond it? The filmmaker Christoph Schaub starts his personal journey through time and space in his childhood, when his fascination with sacred buildings began – and his wonder at beginnings and ends in Architecture of Infinity
