Architecture Design Art Film Festival (ADAFF) aims to create an atmosphere and opportunity for both creators and admirers of the arts to gather in an amazing setting where the essence of architecture, design and the arts is appreciated and fostered.


The Palm Springs Cultural Center presents this unique film festival from the founders of the American Documentary Film Festival and Modernism Week. Set amidst the beautiful mountains and desert of the Coachella Valley, ADAFF will present films from around the world that will be shared with an intelligent and adoring audience. Modernism Week is one of the largest celebrations of architecture in the world. Palm Springs boasts a plethora of modernist creations in architecture, design and the arts. The festival is not limited to only modernist creations, often interested in sharing the origins of this genre but in general how the arts inspire artists and audiences alike.

Date of production is not relevant, though we are always excited to discover new works about the creative process. Retrospective and reprisal screenings in the Palm Springs area are accepted. A special emphasis will be placed on finding works of design related to modern architecture and the components and lifestyle that are mutually linked. If invited, please note that if your work is currently on the web on services such as free youtube or vimeo, it is required that the work be pulled from the web until after the end of the festival.
