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.

An homage to America’s most renowned architect, the film brings to life the historic collaboration to restore Unity Temple back to its original beauty. The dedicated team of architects, craftspeople, historians, and members of the Unity Temple Unitarian Universalist Congregation and Unity Temple Restoration Foundation reveal the history of one of Wright’s most innovative buildings that merged his love of architecture with his own spiritual values. The film includes reflective quotes of the architect’s philosophies narrated by Brad Pitt.
