From 15 to 24 September, we will meet again for the 14th edition of Film Spring Open in Cracow's Przegorzały. As in previous years, the workshop days will surely be a very intense unexceptional time, which will probably result in little sleep. Among us, there are no viewers -‐‐ we are all creators. Our festival is about making films and projects. About learning from the best and meeting future creative partners. This year over 60 remarkable technology companies will support us with equipment worth over PLN 12.5 million. Film Spring Open 2019 will also be attended by notable guests from Poland and aboard.
One of our special guests is Andrey Zvyagintsev, a prominent world-‐‐famous director, two-‐‐time Academy Award and BAFTA nominee, winner of the Venice and Cannes film festival awards, the Cesar's Award and many other international festivals. He is best known for his films Leviathan, Loveless and The Return.
Another guest is Ollie Rankin from Canada, visual effects expert who worked for legendary Hollywood productions such as Matrix, Transformers, X-‐‐Men, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings. He has been a virtual reality pioneer since the 1980s.
We will also be honoured to welcome Tomasz Kot, a brilliant actor who received acclaim in Poland and abroad. He was nominated for Best Actor by the European Film Awards for his role in the Oscar-‐‐nominated Cold War.
Another foreign guest will be Sophie Kyriacou, a 3D-‐‐animation artist with over 20 years of experience in BBC, member of BAFTA, author of animation for prize-‐‐winning feature films and documentaries which received worldwide acclaim.
