Architecture & Design Film Festival in New York

October 16, 2013

The Architecture & Design Film Festival is returning to the Tribeca Cinemas for its fifth season. This year’s line-up includes 25 films from 10 countries, accompanied by discussions with filmmakers, architects, designers, and industry leaders. The selected films in this year's five-day festival explore universal topics of scale, population, urban planning, and architecture. They also offer intimate looks into the work of urban designers like Jan Gehl and William Whyte, visionary architects including Antoni Gaudí, Richard Neutra, Tadao Ando and Paolo Soleri, among other subjects. The Festival features one world, eight U.S. and six New York premieres in addition to two sneak previews. The festival is organized into 15 individual 90-minute programs featuring 1-3 films each.
