Washington, D.C. -- The National Building Museum will partner with the Architecture and Design Film Festival to launch the first festival in Washington, D.C. (ADFF: D.C.), presented with the Revada Foundation. ADFF is the nation’s largest film festival devoted to the creative spirit that drives architecture in design.

Over the course of four days, the festival will screen films that explore the life and work of architects such as Rem Koolhaas and Bjarke Ingels, and journalist, author and activist Jane Jacobs, and timely topics such as design for positive social change and generative healthcare design. ADFF D.C. begins with an opening night celebration and screening of BIG TIME. Other films to be shown include: Building Hope: The Maggie's Centres; Citizen Jane: Battle for the City; Glenn Murcutt: Spirit of Place ; and REM.

The National Building Museum will be the venue for all films, featuring three separate theaters, two of which will be specially outfitted for the festival, including the Museum’s iconic Great Hall. The festival will run February 22-5, 2018.

ADFF: D.C. is presented by the Revada Foundation, courtesy of the estates of Reva and David Logan, with additional support from American Institute of Architects, The Howard Hughes Corporation, and Bonstra|Haresign Architects.
