ByDesign Festival 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 2019 edition of Northwest Film Forum’s annual ByDesign Festival, held March 15–17, was 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 integrated 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.
