The central theme of 18th edition of the Film Spring Open Workshop will be artificial intelligence.We invite you to join another group whose members will use AI tools.The Music Videos Group with Kobas Laksa will work on music videos for Jan Młynarski’s songs using Comica sound equipment.
Participants will shoot music videos for four songs by Jan Emil Młynarski: two from the album “Narkotyki” with pre-war songs and two from his new album, which has not been released yet. The composer and multi-instrumentalist will visit this year’s Workshop.
If you are interested in participating in the group and having early access to the songs, please contact us.

We live in a culture of images. More or less consciously we make millions of decisions about the meaning of colors and shapes. From religious symbols through art and politics to private taste, we build the sense and meaning of the so-called reality. The consequence is that we not only easily succumb to visual manipulations, but we even expect them, as if we were not sure that what surrounds us really exists,
says Kobas Laksa.
