We’re back! After three years away due to the pandemic, AFI’s Production Design Showcase returns featuring work from the final year of the Class of 2022. And what a year it was! Production Designer Eve Stewart said, “I believe that if you’re a designer you can design anything – from a kettle to an opera.” This class has done just that: from a bombed-out Dresden set to fantasy sea-castles to the surface of alien planets, you’ll see a little bit of everything at this year’s Showcase. I’m so proud of the hard work that our graduating Production Design Fellows have put in during their two years at AFI, and I can’t wait for you to get to know them all a little bit better.

So tonight, enjoy some food, have a drink, and take some time to explore the exhibited work of our 12 talented Production Design Fellows. Thank you for coming and supporting the important and collaborative role of the Production Designer in cinematic storytelling.
