ByDesign Festival 2020


** Submit YOUR film to ByDesign here! The regular deadline is Dec. 1, 2019 **

March 18-22, 2020

ByDesign Festival brings together a diversity of people, ideas and creative visions to explore intersections of design, architecture, and the moving image. The program celebrates artists who combine forms and disciplines to transform our visual culture. Each edition features an array of guest artists, film screenings, performances, hands-on generative workshops, panels, and presentations that illuminate the roots, currents, and future of design in motion.

ByDesign is hosted and produced annually by Northwest Film Forum in collaboration with community partners.

The 20th edition of ByDesign Festival will be curated and promoted in close partnership with Design in Public, a strategic initiative of AIA Seattle dedicated to unleashing the design thinker in everyone. The festival integrates NWFF and DiP’s core missions and visions, by focusing on societal growth and community-building—as viewed through the lens of design-centered thinking.

2020 submissions are now closed. We’d love to see your work next year!
