    Production/School: DIMITRIS AGATHOPOULOS
    Dialogue language: Modern Greek (1453-)

    "Immersion" is both a theoretical and a 3D visual arts concept, created for the needs of my dissertation on the MA studies in Digital Arts, of the Athens School of Fine Arts. It took almost two years for the film to be completed, inevitably in parts, since the whole story is estimated to cover 25 minutes in total. For the same reason, a shorter version of the main story (story fragments) is presented here (In medias res). In brief, "Immersion", is a 3D animation sci-fi short film, inspired by the current technological achievements and breakthroughs in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Environments and by the evolution of Cognitive Science and Neurobiology, as well. The film forms a narration on virtual reality and consciousness, woven through the synergy of different scientific fields. The Key role character of the story is a software interface agent, who "synchronizes" itself with its operator in an experiment in the field of Neuromorphic Engineering that studies the coupling possibilities of bio-logical and digital information. Failing to reach the desired interconnection time which is required for the synchronization to be completed, the experiment leads to a complete withdrawal of both the biological agent and the interface agent. At the same time, "deviations" that balance the margins between error and evolution, are revealed. The animated film is the result of my theoretic study related to my MA dissertation entitled "A Study on the Sensory Perception in the Context of Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence".

  25. War Machine 06:31 Bulgaria 2019
    Directed by: Iva Dimanova
    Screenplay: Vladislav Budinov

    "War Machine" deals with one of the oldest problems of the humanity - war. Painting a world not based on any particular conflict, but rather an amalgomation of several conflicts. Observing a world with no good and evil, in which war and it's consumption of life has become a well oilled machine, allows me to explore the true nature of war - the act of killing. The act of mass produced killing. The act of stripping the humanity away from the people until they are nothing more than war machines.

    The snow is melting, the water is rising - grandpa Mazay is collecting hares on his boat. But this time Mazay faces obstacles. This "saving parable" shows us that the rescue of a drowning man isn't always the drowning man's own job This is a social film that touches upon the topic of consumer society. The issue is very relevant for our time. It speaks of people who have power, but not morality and principles. They can seem decent, put on the masks of true Christians, and under this guise do terrible things, that bring them benefits. These people have neither conscience nor mercy, there is only a desire to profit from everything. And if you found yourself in a difficult situation, you'd better act in accordance with the proverb "If you need a helping hand, the best place to look is at the end of your sleeve", and not foolishly entrust your life into the hands of stranger

    Directed by: isea karsli
    Screenplay: isea karsli
    Production/School: isea karsli
    Dialogue language: English

    In our society the representation of reality has supplanted the reality itself; the so-called Society of the Spectacle incorporated the individual in attitudes and behaviours aimed to advance a distracted, image-saturated, consumer society in which we lost sight of the paradoxes and absurd mechanisms that drive our everyday life. With a touch of irony, this project aims to highlight the mediocrity behind some of our modern trends and thoughts, to unveil the props of our own show and raise some awareness towards the glimmering reality we live in.
