VnLab project – summary

The presentation focuses on current plans and the conference summarizing the first 4 years of the vnLab – the Visual Narrative Laboratory operating at the Film School in Lodz. Above all, it is a review of the projects that are approaching their premieres and which – as yet unfinished /in progress/ – were presented at the exhibition accompanying the conference. As we are nearing the end of the first cycle of the Laboratory activity, the number of projects leaving our walls is considerable. If you are interested in what projects will leave the walls of the Film School, we invite you to a presentation by Krzysztof Pijarski, a professor at the Film School in Lodz and head of the Visual Narration Laboratory.
