The Forward Festival has been a significant yearly event for the creative industry in the DACH area. It connects the leading creatives, local heroes, and uprising young creatives from all the different fields of the industry. The festival offers a wide range of topics, from graphic design, typography, and animation to advertising, creative entrepreneurship, photography, and film. Furthermore, it supports the collaboration between the different disciplines and also the connection between the creative workfields.

In 2023 CEO and founder Othmar Handl wants to push the inspiration and exchange even further and together with his team, they take the next logical step: “After our very successful implementation of a two-day program with two stages in Berlin, we will go even further this year. We are moving to the HKW Berlin for this, which offers us even more possibilities. At our home game in Vienna, we will, as usual, transform the city’s largest cinema hall in the Gartenbaukino into a mecca of creativity for two days.”

The program is packed with exciting highlights to suit every taste. From international heavyweights like Anthony Burrill and Baugasm to 3D superstars Ines Alpha and Ada Sokol, along with creative illustration geniuses Yuko Shimizu, Aurelia Durand, and Malika Favre, plus the visual multi-talent Alice Isaac—prepare to be inspired. Expect over 60 talks from creative minds, with more speaker announcements coming soon.
