As every year, we organize the Animation Group at the Film Spring Open Workshop. It will be mentored by one of our favorite mentors, painter, set designer and director of animated films, Mariusz Wilczyński. He will be accompanied by an assistant Natalia Durszewicz.
Each member of the Animation Group will work on their project using the technique of their choice and according to their own scripts. Before the Workshop, there will be an online meeting with Maestro, during which the students will present their ideas for screenplays. It will take place on October 3 at 6 p.m.

I fell in love with animation because it allows you to materialize the craziest ideas and beautiful dreams. If you want the same – join my group,
