Main slide of the presentation titled Formy i gatunki telewizyjne

We're proud to announce that our second-year students in the Production and Television Organisation have created a compendium of knowledge about television practices and genres. The work, which has taken the form of a presentation, has over 200 slides.

Prof. Kazimierz Wolny-Zmorzyński, vice dean for education and students, offered scientific supervision. It is also worth noting that, in addition to citing statutory definitions, he attempted to delve into the question: format or genre?

The work, titled "Forms and Genres of Television," provides us with basic theoretical knowledge supported by practical examples. True to its title, it delves deeper into different genres in television, encompassing journalism (talk shows, reviews, reportages), film (documentary, gangster, spy, cut-out animation), theatre and stage (concert, benefit, pantomime), music (opera, ballet, song), and scientific and popular science (reconstruction, popular science fiction films).

In the presentation, you will find graphic and audiovisual materials to indicate the comparison of individual television forms, both domestic and foreign.

Here are the names of all the students who worked on the project: Aleksandra Kaczorowska, Aleksandra Murias, Amelia Zalewska, Artur Guzik, Bruno Bednarski, Dawid Małek, Dominika Uliszak, Jakub Jaskóła, Jakub Kaszny, Jakub Kawalec, Jan Sapiński, Jan Wierzbicki, Julia Charmuszko, Kalina Bienias, Kalina Głowińska, Kamil Warszawski, Kamila Kopczyńska, Kinga Swerczek, Konrad Mrozek, Laura Barańska, Lena Pach, Maciej Muszkatel, Maksymilian Małota, Małgorzata Gryko, Marcin Kamiński, Mikołaj Kalarus, Natalia Bąba, Patryk Polkowski, Patryk Zojdź, Piotr Janosz, Veronica Gigliotti, Zofia Nawrocka. Last but not least, Jan Klein did an exclusive role in handling the editorial work.

A hearty congratulations to all the students who participated in this massive project. The link below will enable you to familiarize yourself with the project. In addition, it's a valuable resource for anyone who is even remotely interested in television genres. Don't miss the opportunity to expand the horizons of your knowledge: link

Kieślowski Film School is an integral part of the ongoing Polish-Ukrainian film workshops in Katowice.

"Only Ashes" is a Polish-Ukrainian film workshop produced by the Film Inkubator Foundation in Katowice and financed by the PZU Foundation. Participants from Poland and Ukraine are afforded the opportunity to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of creative activities. These range from acting skills and working with a director or professional actor to working with the camera surrounded by experienced organizers and co-creators.

After weeks of preparation, the production stage of the workshop is currently underway and will be crowned with the production of two short films, directed and written by Przemysław Kopacz, a student of Directing at the Kieślowski Film School and a graduate of the AMA Film Academy in the field of film editing in Krakow.

In addition, the cinematographer of the films created during the workshops is the highly talented Lena Jabłońska. She is not only a student at the film school, studying Film Image Implementation and Photography, but also a camera operator who has worked on many notable films, such as "Bread and Salt" by Damian Kocur, a Kieślowski Film School student, and Jan Komasa's "Haters" and "Suicide Room."

Also working on the project is a graduate of Kieślowski Film School, Justyna Koziarz, who is a producer at the Film Inkubator Foundation.

Interestingly, the films feature actors from Poland and Ukraine, both professionals and amateurs selected through casting. The films created in the workshops will premiere in 2024. The project aims to integrate and empower Poles and Ukrainians. To check out the photographs from the workshop, just click this link.

Summer Media School workshops for film school students and young professionals, which started on June 23, 2023, are drawing to a close on July 6, 2023.

The two-week residency workshops organized in Lithuania gave participants the opportunity to create short films. Kieślowski Film School students, who are in the second year of Creative Management in New Media, made these films in cooperation with students from Lithuania, Spain, Finland, Latvia, and Estonia.

For our students, the workshops were a part of the classes conducted by Kieślowski Film School lecturer Dr. Anna Huth. They were also part of Erasmus+ BIP, which consists of short, intensive programs that focus on innovative learning methods.

We've incorporated photographs that capture the intensity of the production process - link.

You can also find posters of films co-produced by Dr. Anna Huth and our students.
