Egyptian design through the lens: Film My Design

“Design is not just a final product that you see in a space but it’s resources, it’s effort, it’s a story,” says Farah El Rafei, co-founder of Film My Design.

We sat down with the three co-founders of Film My Design, Farah, Israa, and Nada, to hear more about how their passion for design brought them together to create a program and annual event that brings together Egyptian designers and filmmakers.

Film My Design gives designers and filmmakers the unique opportunity to work together to create design-film documentaries that capture the processes, concepts, and culture behind Egyptian design. These documentaries serve as excellent communication tools that not only educate but archives the essence of Egyptian design.

Following a successful first edition in 2018, the team is now working on an expanded program for its 2nd edition, complete with international collaborations and a new curator-led program targeting emerging designers and filmmakers.
