A+D SEASON 8

Dear A+D Community,

Let us begin by sending deep gratitude for your continued support of the A+D Film Series, and hopes that you are well as we navigate these strange and difficult times.

Planning for Season 8 is well underway. In our continuing commitment to bring inspiring and engaging films to our community, we have selected eight films, each beautiful, powerful and compelling in it’s own way. Please visit our FILMS page for the full lineup, dates, descriptions, and previews.

Understandably, we will not be hosting our usual gatherings at Contois Auditorium and 118 Elliot. Instead, a link and password for home viewing will be provided at ADfilmseries.org. Working with Burlington City Arts we will continue designing steal-able posters along with online, social media, and print publicity for the films and our sponsors.

Offering these films to the public free of charge is one of our founding principals and made possible by sponsor contributions.  In these challenging times we believe it’s more important than ever to share new perspectives, beauty, and yes, entertainment, with the loyal and still growing audience established over the past seven seasons.

We look forward to kicking off the season on September 23rd, please check back for updates soon.

Thank you again,

A+D Film Series Team

We would like to extend our thanks to all of our sponsors, collaborators, and attendees for your continued support of the Architecture + Design Film Series.  Your energy and commitment is instrumental in bringing to life this fun and engaging community event!

As we reflect on another successful season, we understand that the events of the past few months have introduced new and challenging circumstances in regards to large gatherings as we look ahead to Season 8. Our team is currently working to determine how best to continue offering this creative gathering to our community safely, so please stay tuned for updates this summer.

If you have any questions, feedback, or suggestions for us during this planning phase we encourage you to reach out, we would like to hear from you on how you envision this series moving forward?
