New York Architecture and Design Film Festival kicks off today at Tribeca Cinemas 

Starting today and running until Sunday 17th October, the first ever US film festival dedicated to the fields of architecture and design is the brainchild of architect Kyle Bergman. The festival will premiere in New York City's Tribeca Cinemas showing over forty feature length films, documentaries and shorts focusing on the creative minds behind some of the world's greatest architectural masterpieces.

Anywhere from 2 to 80 minutes in length, the films will be coupled with a comprehensive programme of interactive discussions and Q&A sessions in the Cinema's adjacent lounge, where friends and colleagues will be able to take part in animated debates on the topic of international design practice.

"We're delighted with the final roster of films," says Bergman. "They cover an incredible range of design-oriented topics, from architecture and urban design to graphics and product design. As we like to say, 'Design Directs Everything.'

"We've got films on pioneers in architecture and design from the middle of the last century, including graphic designer Herbert Matter, an almost forgotten genius; Lucienne and Robin Day, often called the Charles and Ray Eames of Britain; and Julius Shulman, the renowned architectural photographer. Then we take audiences to the present with films like Studio Gang Architects: Aqua Tower, about an amazing Chicago firm founded in 1997 by architect Jeanne Gang. "
