From January 6 to 8, 2022, the Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF) will return to the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., presenting a worldwide survey of Indigenous architects, climate initiatives, looks behind the curtain to firm-side stories, and films that tie into the museum’s ongoing The Wall/El Muro: What is a Border Wall? exhibition.

After moving wholly online in 2020 as a pandemic precaution and executing a hybrid structure for the 2021 season for the same reason, the ADFF:DC will mark a return to the full, in-person festival at the recently reopened National Building Museum. As the museum noted in its festival announcement, this is the first full-length ADFF to run in the United States since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic (in-person events ran in Toronto and Vancouver this year).

“We are excited to continue our partnership with ADFF and to host this wonderful and unique film festival,” said Aileen Fuchs, president and executive director of the National Building Museum, in the announcement. “Our focus is to offer engaging, immersive programming that inspires and educates about the world we design and build. This cultural partnership offers extraordinary films that spotlight innovation, leadership and critical community issues, like design and its impact on sustainability and social equity—signature topics in the Museum’s exhibitions and programming. And, it’s a great opportunity to have some fun with friends and family when it’s cold outside!”
