IPDW (International Production Design Week) will be an opportunity to shine a light on the craft and its practitioners. The week will feature a diverse program of in-person and virtual events, including panels, workshops, masterclasses, screenings, meetups and receptions. The program is open to filmmakers, industry collaborators and the general public. Events will focus on themes of Creativity, Research and Inspiration, Sustainable Design Methods, Digital Tools and Emerging Technologies, Collaboration, Leadership, Mentorship, Representation and Inclusion. Envisioned as a biennial program, IPDW is organized in collaboration with Production Design guilds and associations in the USA, Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. The initiative's twenty-one founding partners include the Art Directors Guild and United Scenic Artists in the USA, The European Federation of Production and Costume Design (Artscenico), the Australian Production Design Guild, Brazilian Art Directors (BRADA), the Turkish Art Directors Association and the Japanese Film and Television Art Directors Association. Other collaborators will include Production Design educational programs and film schools, film organizations and screening rooms, industry vendors and media outlets. Apropos of the inaugural program, some members of the collective share their reflections on the craft, and why IPDW is a significant opportunity for the filmmaking community.
