From the beginning of Film Spring Open Workshop, we have been trying to create an international melting pot of innovation. A large number of interdisciplinary participants, well-known lecturers and group tutors, as well as representatives of the industry from various fields of audiovisual work and industry build an ideas exchange platform and incubator in one place for 10 days and establish professional relations which will have an impact on the participants’ professional future and the development of the industry.
Every year we update our interdisciplinary, future-oriented educational programme for market novelties, so that the skills developed by our participants make them effective in the European and international work place. Moreover, the future-oriented education at the Film Spring Open is not limited to theoretical lectures and analysis.

At Film Spring Open Workshop, we predominantly work in multidisciplinary teams, under supervision of specialists. The multidisciplinary character of our project aids the process.

The workshop features:

• Work in creative groups in the form of Videoconferences. Participants registered in a given dedicated group will be able to consult and develop their individual projects in a group or during individual sessions.
• We’ll offer individual consultation not only during the FSO workshop but throughout the whole year.
• Online lectures of “stars” and outstanding professionals. Every year we invite outstanding artists and technicians whose movies and AV projects determine the future development of our industry.
• At the end of the workshop, we’ll organize a joint screening of films, tests, AV projects made during the workshop by the participants.
• We’ll promote our participants’ achievements. They will be able to stream their projects online as part of the “You Can Do It” screening.
• Moreover, thanks to our Technology Partners, we plan to organize equipment workshops, demonstrations of the latest equipment and solutions.
• Moreover, our technology partners – audiovisual equipment rentals in various only Polish cities (sorry for that) have promised to lend selected equipment and their services free of charge to our participants.



Every year we invite great artists and technicians to speak about every stage of the audiovisual filmmaking process, from scriptwriting right through to financing, execution and promotion...
