Film screenings at IT STEP Academy
We invite you to join us in our new innitiative ‘Film screenings at IT STEP Academy’ every Tuesday at 19:00.
In the context of the opening of our first branch on the territory of Bulgaria we invite you to a free screening of a film of our choice.
The intention behind the initiative is to relate the sphere of our activity- the IT technologies- to the passion for cinema and thus to create a space for cultural communication.
The films we have selected are in one way or another thematically connected to the computer technologies and our idea is to through each film to stress upon a different topic which we could briefly discuss after the projection.
Virtual and physical reality, simulation and authenticity, identity in the digital age, artificial intelligence, technological progress and the vision of the future– these are some of the themes that can be found in the films we’ve selected.
We will start with one captivating and thought-provoking British sci-fi film – Ex Machina
