Architecture & Design Film Festival
Thank you for attending ADFF 2023 at the Chicago Architecture Center. Sign up for emails from the CAC and be the first to hear about future programs, exhibitions, tours and more.
This winter the CAC will be transforming our galleries into a temporary cineplex and welcoming the New York City-based Architecture & Design Film Festival. The line-up includes 15 feature films and more than a dozen free film shorts from all across the world, each sharing a unique story of innovation and sustainability in architecture, design and fashion. Come join us for this festive celebration for the design-minded. From creative explorations of fascinating architects like Winy Maas and Geoffrey Bawa, to celebrations in artmaking from Marimekko to street art, to the behind-the-scenes drama in everything from contemporary design competitions to community preservation movements, there is something on view for most everyone.
