Dezeen promotion: movies about famous architects and Dezeen's drone documentary Elevation will be shown during the Architecture & Design Film Festival in New York, 16-21 October 2018, and readers receive a discount on tickets.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the New York edition of the Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF:NY) will include world and US premieres, among a curated selection of more than 30 feature-length and short movies.
Based at Cinépolis Chelsea, the programme will kick off on 16 October 2018 with the international debut of Leaning Out – a documentary about Leslie E Robertson, the lead structural engineer for the Twin Towers.
The line-up that follows will include "films that touch upon relevant social and political issues", covering topics like American prison design and the use of gaming technology to design cities.
Several panel discussions between filmmakers and industry experts are organised to coincide with the screenings. For examples, Architectural Record editor-in-chief Cathleen McGuigan will moderate a talk with Jake Gorst, director of Frey: Part 1 – The Architectural Envoy.
Dezeen is media partner for the festival, and our award-nominated documentary about how drones are changing cities, Elevation, will be shown in both the main theatre, and the Sony pop-up theatre throughout the programme.
