By Architecture & Design Film Festival (other events)

Sun, Apr 19 2020 8:00 PM EDT Mon, Apr 20 2020 1:00 AM EDT

ADFF:ONLINE is a way for the architecture and design community to remain engaged and experience specially-curated films during this “shelter-at-home” period. We hope this new online venue will serve as a virtual space for the professional design industry - and the broader community - to be together. 

The live streaming program will start at 8:00 pm ET with an introduction by ADFF Founder Kyle Bergman. Then the feature film, City Dreamers, will be screened, followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, Joseph Hillel. The entire program will be about 90 minutes. ADFF will replay the program again at 8:00 pm PT. 

City Dreamers
Director: Joseph Hillel
2018 / 80 min / Canada

Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, Denise Scott Brown – four trailblazers who became accustomed to being the only woman in the room. Each has an extensive list of accomplishments in architecture, planning and landscape architecture dating back 60+ years and has taught, mentored and inspired generations of professionals. How have they envisioned our cities?

Through original interviews, archival material and stunning cinematography, documentary filmmaker Joseph Hillel uncovers how each of these strong, independent thinkers has shaped the cities we live and work in. As the world becomes increasingly urbanized, the insights of these forward-looking women who have built social and environmental values into their work seem more relevant now than ever.
