ByDesign 2015 Series Pass

ByDesign 2015
APRIL 10 - 14, 2015

Co-presented with Civilization

ByDesign, our annual architecture and design film festival, returns in a new partnership with Seattle design firm Civilization. This year's film lineup roves the architectural terrain of tiny houses, the history of typography, the interiors of 1977's psychic landscapes, a German architecture firm captured through the lens of the late Harun Farocki in one of his last films, and more.

ByDesign brings together a diversity of people, ideas and creative visions to explore intersections of design and the moving image. The program celebrates artists who combine forms and disciplines to transform our visual culture. Join us for an opening party and array of guest artists and speakers, documentaries, panel discussions that illuminate the roots, currents and future of design in motion.

   Get a series pass and see all of ByDesign at a discount: $60 ($30 for Film Forum Members)

Seattle premiere!
Co-presented with Civilization

Apr 11

(Jesper Wachtmeister, 2013, Sweden, 55 min)

For most of us, "house" means stability, structure and permanence, but in an age of rapid population growth and technological advancements, mobile and portable dwellings are increasingly in demand. Microtopia explores how architects, artists and ordinary problem-solvers are pushing the limits of architecture to pursue their dreams of portability, flexibility and independence from "the grid."

When Arthur, the family patriarch (E.G. Marshall) leaves Eve, the family is thrown into disarray.

Sauerbruch Hutton Architects

Seattle premiere!
Co-presented with Civilization

Apr 14

(Harun Farocki, Germany, 2013, 73 min)

"Architects at work: a priori nothing lends itself better to cinema, nothing is more graphic than shots that alternate between the drawing and the built structure, between the two-dimensional plan and the three dimensional result. Yet this film, with its corporate-sounding title, shot over three months in a large Berlin-based firm abandons this clarity to instill a generalised doubt  not so much about the value of those it films as about its own critical viewpoint." Charlotte Garson, Cinema du Reel
