The ArchiFlix Architecture & Design Film Festival celebrates the unique creative spirit that drives architecture and design. With a curated selection of films, events and panel discussions, AADFF creates an opportunity to entertain, engage and educate industry professionals who are excited about architecture and design.
This year, the AADFF will be screening two films from Film Art Media – The Edge of The Possible and Harry Siedler: Modernist.
After 3 successful years as a single night event in cities across Australia, and having welcomed more than 3000 guests, ArchiFlix is now growing up to become Australia’s first national Architecture and Design Film Festival.
The screenings are enthusiastically supported by design professionals and thought leaders who contribute to vibrant discussions. 2017 will see the festival hosted in Sydney and Melbourne, with satellite events in Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth.
