“Representation within film and media for marginalized communities is a conversation that needs to occur in spaces that can help dismantle the inequity. This year’s ByDesign festival serves as a platform to reclaim space and reimage structures for communities of color. The festival will showcase artists whose work and overall being challenge social constructs. These individuals and groups are reweaving and redesigning the foundations for which communities of color represent themselves.”

– Mia Harrison, Festival Director
