Forward Exchange Program 2021
- Hamburg 2021 / designxport Hamburg / Main Stage
>>FOURTH EDITION – VIENNA x HAMBURG INVITE<<
The fourth edition of the Forward Exchange Program is here and we are very excited to invite you to it! Join other creatives and get free Livestream access to our Festivals and masterclasses in Hamburg and Vienna, hybrid studio visits, exchange of experiences with experts & more!
This year’s spotlight will be on “Design & Film”. Together we will focus on questions like: How are technologies changing the classic design areas in the medium of film? What role do technologies such as VR / AR, VFX, or animation play in this process? How are these questions taken up and tackled in the Hamburg scene?
Summer in Hamburg – Fall in Vienna
The Forward Exchange Program connects the two festivals and provides inspiration and exchange in a hybrid way – between Hamburg and Vienna as well as between the digital and analog realms. This offer is aimed at creative professionals from the two cities working in the fields of design, communication, multimedia, film industry and architecture, who deal with the interfaces of “Design & Film” in their work and are looking for new impulses for their work.
