FUTURE GATE SCI-FILM FESTIVAL 2020
Future Gate is the largest festival of science fiction films and culture in the Eastern Europe. Festival takes place in the heart of Europe, in beautiful city of Prague. During the 6 years of its existence, the festival has created a strong audience base not only among film lovers but also among fans of science and future technologies. The festival is regularly visited by thousands of people.
Every year the festival brings rare guests from abroad as well as interesting personalities from the world of film and science. Its aim is not only to entertain the audience, but also to point our some important topics and give audience an original experience of meeting with the film makers and educate them in lectures on modern technologies, science and literature. The film program presents the latest titles, accompanied by legends of the genre, documents and serial marathons.
The 7th annual of the festival is entitled “Cyber revolution” and is devoted to the question of freedom of the modern man. The theme is inspired by current situation in some countries where citizens are restricted by state and technologies are misused to control people. We want also to point our some other important topics: fake news, cyber attacks, restrictions of media, cyber bullying, etc. The theme will resonate in selected films, the accompanying program, lectures and discussions with experts.
Attractive look guaranteed by the sub-genre “cyberpunk”. It is cyberpunk that filmmakers, writers and artists portray the futuristic vision of our society, where advanced technologies are not used to the benefit of the individual, but often misused to overrun and control by all-powerful corporations. Regarding the film festival program we want to screen among the film legends Robocop, Total Recall, Johhny, Mnemonic and Matrix. These amazing films are very imporant not only for our topic but also because these masterpieces are milestones in science fiction genre.
