A festival that has become an annual favourite with WFS members is back for the 12th year with screenings in the familiar surroundings of The Embassy Theatre. RADFF23 features exceptional architecture from around the world, as well as features on inspiring architects and photographers. There is a full schedule of all Festival screenings at The Embassy here. And Dan Slevin’s Preview on RNZ is well worth a read too.
One highlight is the opening night feature on Thursday 18th May. Brown vs Brown features beautiful archive footage and contemporary shots of mid-century modernist buildings as Auckland filmmaker Simon Mark-Brown explores the tensions between regionalists and internationalists at the time.
