    comprehensive and future-oriented education, including lectures and workshops from
    award-winning top professionals (also Oscar winners), screenings of the selected,
    awarded films and discussions with their makers, one-to-one tutorials, learning and
    testing new technologies.
    Borys Lankosz, a graduate of the famous Film School in Lodz, one of the oldest film schools in
    the world, made his debut in 2001 with a touching documentary Evolution about neglected
    patients of a mental institution. The film was awarded on various international documentary
    festivals. Lankosz worked on the script of Evolution with Marcin Koszałka, also a frequent guest

    recognized as one of the best Polish films of the decade and was the Polish official entry for the

    guidance of the best specialists, but also it gives a huge boost of energy to create and work.
    - It is a great opportunity to meet young filmmakers from around the world. I believe that by
    sharing my experience with them, I will be able to give them strength and inspiration for further
    development and creativity - says Borys Lankosz.
