15:00 - 16:00 Creation of PC games in Elementary Art School, author playing

Creation of PC games in Elementary Art School, author playing

Lecturer: Honza Příhoda + students of the Elementary Art School Trnka in Pilsen

In the beginning, there was a crazy idea to boost art education in art schools with animation. And that’s how Animanie was born. Many years later, another idea came, and it was no less crazy  – to make a computer game with the art school students. What will be next?

The program is suitable for everyone who would like to create their own game and have no experience in this field yet. Teachers who are not afraid of dead ends and hate the phrase: “This is not possible” are also welcome.

In the game zone, you can play games created by children aged 10 to 15. In the meantime, you can try sample games here or here.

The Congress

režie Ari Folman, Israel, Germany, Poland, 2013, 120 min.

In a world of digital animation, is there a place for film acting yet?

In this movie, based on a literary work of Stanisław Lem, Ari Folman, the director of the award-winning film Waltz with Bashir, focuses on a dystopic vision of a world in which computer technology replaces human – as well as in the field of film acting. Robin Wright, the actress popular primarily thanks to the House of Cards series, stars the role of herself as an aging actress who decides for scanning her body and creating her own hologram. To depict a world where reality blends with digital images, the director used an impressive combination of feature film and animated film.

Icarus XB 1

režie Jindřich Polák, ČSSR, 1963, 83 min.

A nonaging Czechoslovak film about the journey to extraterrestrial civilizations.

Based on the script written by Pavel Juráček, inspired by the work of Stanisław Lem, director Jindřich Polák made a unique Czechoslovak contribution to the sci-fi genre depicting futuristic space travel. At the time of the Soviet-American space race, when similar films were often heavily influenced by politics, Barrandov managed to shoot a timeless spectacle full of classic film tricks, which is still popular not only among Czech and Slovak viewers. The film will be presented digitally restored.

režie Aleksa Gajić, Serbian, 2009, min.

Welcome to Belgrade, the year 2074.

Serbian director Aleksa Gajić takes us to Belgrade in the near future, introducing us to the main character of this film, a student of psychology named Edit. She decides to outsmart a hard test undergoing a risky experiment with a memory chip. However, this has serious consequences for her, and Edit must struggle to save herself… Even ten years after its release, this film (which is presented in the Czech Republic quite exceptionally) captivates the audience with a functional mixture of dystopic vision of the future, cyberpunk, and visuals of Japanese comic books.

Fritzi: A Revolutionary Tale

režie Matthias Bruhn, Ralf Kukula, Německo / Lucembursko / B, 2019, min.

Set out with the little girl Fany for the exciting events of 1989.

On the 17th November, precisely on the day of the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, we present a film that describes the events of summer and autumn 1989 to the youngest generation, and does so based on real events but at the same time, in a sensitive and affectionate manner – through the eyes of a little girl. Fany lives in the East-German town Leipzig and decides to search for her friend. The thing is that her friend did not return to school after the summer holidays, as she and her parents – like many other citizens of former GDR – set out on a journey to the West-German emigration. Will Fany find her friend and will she manage to return her dog Sputnik to her?
