ByDesign Festival 2023 [Hybrid]

Mar 17 - Mar 19, 2023
5 Films , 1 Workshop


*** ByDesign 2023 will be a hybrid festival format. All festival passes will grant equal access to both virtual AND in-person viewing. ***

ByDesign Festival is a cross-cultural exploration of people, structures, and ideas at the intersection of design and the moving image.

Featuring a broad, inclusive selection of films, performances, and interactive activities, ByDesign invites festivalgoers to interrogate their own relationships to personal and collective identity and to examine how humanity’s understanding of itself is central to the ways in which it creates the physical world.

The 2023 edition of Northwest Film Forum’s annual ByDesign Festival is promoted in close partnership with Seattle Design Festival, a strategic initiative of AIA Seattle dedicated to unleashing the design thinker in everyone.

The Seattle Design Festival is a platform for bold design conversations. We believe that design is for everyone and that inclusive co-design practices are essential to shaping an equitable Seattle. We are multidisciplinary, socially engaged and civic minded.

The Seattle Design Festival was founded in 2011 as a strategic initiative of AIA Seattle to promote public dialogue and community engagement about the role and impact of design in urban life.
