Call­ing all Win­nipeg movie buffs and design enthu­si­asts! The sec­ond annu­al Archi­tec­ture + Design Film Fes­ti­val will run May 811 at the Cin­e­math­eque. The fes­ti­val fea­tures crit­i­cal­ly acclaimed films that focus on the impor­tance of archi­tec­ture and design in every­day life.

The Archi­tec­ture + Design Film Fes­ti­val is being pre­sent­ed by Store­front MB, Urban Idea, Win­nipeg Archi­tec­ture Foun­da­tion and Cin­e­math­eque, with spon­sor­ships from 5468796 Archi­tec­ture, Hil­der­man Thomas Frank Cram, and JRWag­n­er Archi­tect. In addi­tion to bring­ing some sought after films to town, the fes­ti­val rep­re­sents a grow­ing inter­est regard­ing the inter­sec­tion of art, archi­tec­ture and urban plan­ning. As a city with nation­al­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly recog­nised archi­tects and a won­der­ful col­lec­tion of archi­tec­ture from many peri­ods, Win­nipeg has a par­tic­u­lar inter­est in this fes­ti­val,” said Susan Algie, Direc­tor of the Win­nipeg Archi­tec­ture Foun­da­tion. The intent is for the film fes­ti­val to encour­age and enhance this inter­est.”

Some of the films fea­tured include: Utopia Lon­don, which observes the method and prac­tice of the Mod­ernist archi­tects who rebuilt Lon­don after World War II; Diller Scofidio + Ren­fro: Reimag­in­ing Lin­coln Cen­tre and the High Line, a look at a famous archi­tec­ture firm’s projects and their unique process of reimag­in­ing the pub­lic iden­ti­ties of two major New York urban spaces; and Life Archi­tec­tural­ly, which fol­lows inter­na­tion­al­ly acclaimed hus­band and wife team – archi­tect Robert McBride and inte­ri­or design­er Deb­bie Ryan to dis­cov­er what inspires their ground­break­ing con­cepts, designs and archi­tec­ture.
