Multimedia and popculture festival of films, animations, music videos and video games. About the youth, by the youth and for the youth. Under the Black Horse flag - a symbol of an unexpected winner, a reference to the protofilm experiment of madman Eadweard Muybridge, a ironic commentary on the golden fauna of film awards, or a reference to the mining heritage of Upper Silesia. Movie screenings, digital games exhibitions, concerts and live acts, meetups and discussions - Ars Independent is a open-formula festival.

In previous years, the festival hosted a variety of artists from all over the world, including Béla Tarr, Nina Menkes, Phil Mulloy, Laila Pakalnina, Bruce LaBruce, Tami Tamaki, Stephen „M.O.O.N.” Gilarde, Jakuba Dvorský, Mariola Brillowska, Piotr Dumała, Arkadiusz Jakubik, Bodo Kox, Łukasz Barczyk, Sos Sosowski, Wiktor Stribog and Władysław Komendarek.

The event is organized by the culture institution Katowice the City of Gardens and the City of Katowice.
