Architecture and Design Film Festival

The Architecture and Design Film Festival is North America’s largest film festival dedicated to architecture and design. From November 1-4, ADFF is coming back to Toronto for another year of great films and insightful discussions, so make sure to catch one of their amazing lineup of 20 films, from all over the world. Learn more about this year’s films on the ADFF website.

The Toronto Society of Architects is proud to once again be partnering with ADFF: Toronto to bring a series of panel discussions that complement this year’s film roster. These short panels bring together architects, community activists, and subject matter experts to further explore the themes of each film and bring them back to our local context here in Toronto. All three panels organized by the TSA take place immediately following the screening of the below films:
