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.

There Goes Our Neighbourhood is an inspiring documentary about residents in the Sydney suburb of Waterloo and a high-rise-scale artwork, created to shine a light on the public housing community of Waterloo.

 

This film follows the fascinating lives of the Waterloo community and their ambitious hope is to unite their neighbourhood, to prevent the destruction of their suburb Waterloo and, quite simply, to be seen. As the demand for public housing increases and the housing crisis dominates the press, this documentary reveals the human face of public housing, and the power of art and community to protest and transform. Often the messaging on our screens about public housing tenants is that of failure, violence and disengaged communities. This film looks beyond that to explore their fight against the formidable forces stacked against them: the government, developers, real estate agents and insatiable gentrifiers who now covet convenient inner-city addresses.
