SVA/BBC Design Film Festival

The upcoming SVA/BBC Design Film Festival will give you the once-in-a-lifetime chance to view groundbreaking BBC films that have never previously been screened in the United States. It takes place at the SVA theatre on 23rd street, here in NYC on March 24th.

The program includes design, advertising, and book-related films on topics such as the future of the book, the history of Levi’s 501 Jeans and the Barcelona chair, and real-life stories of the ad men – and women – behind the fictional tv series Mad Men.

The festival is curated by the wonderful Steven Heller, co-chair of the MFA Design Department at SVA, and Adam Harrison Levy, faculty member in the MFA Design Criticism Department at SVA.
