Film, web 2.0, web 3.0 or the relationship between audiovisual innovation and the metaverse – conference

2023.09.06. 16:17

The CineFest Miskolc International Film Festival was launched 18 years ago, one year after Facebook and YouTube, and the social media and Web 2.0 revolution. In our presentations we will explore challenges, solutions and good practices in internet awareness and smart digital skills.

The conference will take us from social media to the present day, to the world of artificial intelligence and deep fake, while also looking at the birth of film, and exploring exciting topics in film history and the history of audiovisual innovation. Information literacy should become a core skill, and our speakers will guide the audience through this exciting world, drawing on scientific findings and their own practical experience.
