Allegro at the Film Spring Workshop – film project contest

„It’s easier to make something than to sell it. This has been an artist’s problem since forever. When talking about audiovisual arts the obstacles are even bigger because one needs significant funds to start with. A pen, a piece of paper or a musical instrument do not suffice. „Filmmaker’s dreams” require a producer” – says Sławomir Idziak, initiator of Film Spring Workshop.

Therefore, artists have always been looking for patrons who could support their creative work and development of their talent. Patrons have often ordered works of art according to a particular style or form and therefore limiting the artist’s freedom. For the last couple of years Allegro have been supporting audiovisual sector without dictating the form of the project ( „Polish Legends or the series „What are you looking for”). This year we have a pleasure to announce our cooperation at Film Spring Workshop.

Together with Allegro we would like to invite you to participate in the film contest. Thanks to our Partner, Allegro, you may win the grant covering the full cost of participation in our workshop. The contest is open to any film formats interpreting the copy „What are you looking for” or corresponding to Polish Legends. The projects may include: commercials, music videos, short feature films, documentaries, video blogs, interactive projects, VR or video games.

Leaving the form and narration to you, Allegro is focused on original and future-oriented audiovisual works. Film Spring Open Foundation provides you with the film equipment and consultants to support your work. Moreover, you have a chance of finding your own Patron of art if Allegro decides to support the commercial production of your project.
