An innovative look, fresh blood, a space for experimentation and invaluable experience of experts from the film industry… It just can’t go wrong! Film Spring Open serves as a laboratory for audiovisual explorations by young filmmakers. The aim of the international workshops is to help up-and-coming artists from all over the globe to develop their ideas under the guidance of experts in the field. Participants work in groups focusing on subjects such as documentaries, advertising, music videos, VR and AR technologies and production and postproduction.
Every year, Film Spring Open hosts guests from Poland and abroad; in previous years they have included world-famous director Andrey Zvyagintsev, 3D animation artist Sophie Kyriacou, special effects expert Ollie Rankin, actress Natalie Portman and Polish filmmakers such as Borys Lankosz, Bodo Kox and Joanna Kos-Krauze. The organiser of the Film Spring Open is cinematographer Sławomir Idziak, with the KBF and the Kraków Film Commission as partners.
