INVITATION: FUTURE GATE SCI-FI FILM FESTIVAL

We invite you to the eighth annual Future Gate sci-fi film and culture festival, which will start at the Lucerna cinema in Prague on September 15, 2021, after which it will move to Brno. In addition to the main film competition, genre legends and documentaries, it will also bring a new student film competition. This year's festival will be held in a post-apocalyptic spirit. The guest of the festival will be Neill Blomkamp, director of District 9, Elysium and Demonik. And because FAMU is a partner of the festival, our students have free admission to the following three events - all they have to do is prove themselves with a valid student ID.

CHINO MOYA: LEKCE TVORBY HUDEBNÍHO VIDEA / HOW TO CREATE A MUSIC VIDEO
Praha 19.9. 14:00 Galerie Lucerna
Tens of millions of views on the internet, music videos for American singer St. Vincent, the band Hurts or Years & Years, and many prestigious awards. That, in short, is Chino Moya, admirer of Stanley Kubrick, Titian, Lovecraft and Pablo Escobar. In his lesson, Chino will showcase his music video work, link it to his feature film debut Undergods, listed in the Future Gate main festival competition, and share valuable advice with both aspiring and more experienced filmmakers.

SCI-FI FILMS IN PROGRESS
Praha 19.9. 15:30 Galerie Lucerna
V českém prostředí často nečekáme nové sci-fi projekty a tak jsme se rozhodli zapátrat a zjistit, zda se máme v rámci žánru nač těšit. A byli jsme úspěšní! Na programu budou rovnou tři. Jejich tvůrci a producenti představí koprodukční animované postapo, očekávaný hraný film z nedaleké budoucnosti, ale i krátký full dome animák.
