About this event
The Architecture & Design Film Festival:DC (ADFF:DC) will return to the National Building Museum Thursday, January 26, through Sunday, January 29, 2023. ADFF:DC will showcase a diverse program of sixteen films that investigate design’s impact, environmentally and culturally, on the worlds of fashion, real estate, art, architecture, urban planning, and housing.
Opening Night kicks off on Thursday, January 26, with Alice Street, a moving documentary about the power of public art and a mural that brought together artists, community leaders and two neighborhoods in the fight to protect history, culture and voice in the face of gentrification. After the film, Spencer Wilkinson, director of Alice Street, will be joined by, Lailan Sandra Huen, housing activist and educator shown in the film, and Elaine Asal, strategy director, Regional Consulting Practice Area Leader at Gensler, for a panel discussion moderated by Ryan Patterson, public art project manager at the Maryland State Arts Council. The evening will also feature an open bar, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and an opportunity to mingle following the screening of the film.
