The Architecture + Design Film Festival (A+DFF) in Winnipeg presents critically acclaimed films focusing on the importance of architecture and design in everyday life. The films cover a range of design-oriented topics from architecture and urban design to graphics and product design. A+DFF (adff.ca) is the only Canadian festival devoted solely to architecture and design. Our “9.5 festival” is a little smaller this year and only online. Watch for the 10th annual celebrations in 2022. The festival is presented by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation with support from the Manitoba Association of Architects and Urban Idea.

The film Together We Cycle investigates the critical events that led to the revival of Dutch cycling culture. For most people, cycling in the Netherlands seems a natural phenomenon. However, until the 1970s the development of mobility in the Netherlands followed trends across the globe. The bicycle had had its day, and the future belonged to the car. The only thing that had to be done was to adapt cities to the influx of cars.

Then Dutch society took a different turn. Against all odds, people kept on cycling. Why this happened in the Netherlands has no easy answer. In Together We Cycle key players tell the story of the bumpy road which led to the current state, where cycling is an obvious choice for most citizens.
