Balkrishna Doshi, one of India’s most influential 20th-century architects, passed away this year at 95 years old. The Promise provides audiences with the gift of getting to know Doshi, a soft-spoken humanist with distinctly modern designs. He shares his sources of inspiration with exceptional presence of mind, humor, and wisdom.


About the Architecture and Design Film Festival

The Architecture and Design Film Festival (ADFF)—North America’s largest film festival dedicated to architecture and design—is coming back to Toronto for another year of great films and insightful discussions! From November 1-4, catch one of their amazing lineup of 20 films, from all over the world. Looking for the full list of films showcased at this year’s ADFF: Toronto? See the complete programme on the festival’s website!

The TSA is proud to once again be partnering with ADFF: Toronto to bring a series of panel discussions and post-screening Q&As that complement this year’s film roster. These panels bring together architects, film-makers, and subject matter experts to further explore the themes of each film and bring them back to our local context here in Toronto.
