For the sixth year, the Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF) will take over the screens at Tribeca Cinemas, offering guests access to a special lineup of over 25 curated films from around the world. Running from October 15-19, this year’s festival features an impressive panel of distinguished speakers, Q&A’s, and special parties. It also will host the U.S. premier of Cathedrals of Culture, a 3D film project by German filmmaker Wim Wenders. Tickets go on sale today.

ADFF is the nation’s largest film festival devoted to the subject of architecture and design. Titles on this year’s roster include: Brooklyn Farmer, which showcases the unique challenges of a group of urban farmers working on Brooklyn rooftops; Who Dares Wins: Zaha Hadid, a profile of one of the world’s most prolific female architects; and Maker, about the maker movement and its impact on society, culture and economy in the US.

The festival will kick off with the world premier of Gray Matters, a documentary about Eileen Gray, the 20th-century female architect, artist, and designer. The full-length film directed by Marco Orsini explores Gray’s life and career, the historical significance of which have been overlooked until recently.

The Cathedral of Culture series brings together six award-winning directors, each of whom have selected an iconic building to star in their films. The series includes: The Salk Institute by Robert Redford; The Oslo Opera House by Margreth Olin; The Berlin Philharmonic by Wim Wenders; Centre Pompidou by Karim Aïnouz; Halden Prison by Michael Madsen; and The National Library of Russia by Michael Glawogger. These films ask the question, “If buildings could talk, what would they say about us?”
