It’s that time of year again, when the Architecture & Design Film Festival brings a bouquet of moving image portraits about the built environment and the creators behind them to New York. From October 5–19 at Tribeca Cinemas, you can catch the U.S. premiere of the much-anticipated series masterminded by Wim Wenders, Cathedrals of Culture. Made by six directors—Wenders, Robert Redford, Michael Glawogger, Michael Madsen, Margreth Olin and Karim Aïnouz—about six buildings: Berlin Philharmonic, the National Library of Russia, Halden Prison, the Salk Institute, the Oslo Opera House, and the Centre Pompidou, all in 3-D.

There are also a range of profile films on Zaha Hadid, Michael Graves, Dior, Michele De Lucchi, Eileen Grey, and five women architects: Annabelle Selldorf, Farshid Moussavi, Odile Decq, Marianne McKenna, and Kathryn Gustafson. A full range of panel discussion accompany the films.

Follow up last weekend’s Open House New York with next weekend’s armchair tour of architecture from around the world brought to you in film. More info on the film line-up here.
