The Short Movie Club Film Festival “Nefiltravanae Kino” announces a unique film programme composed by artificial intelligence. The selection of films and the winners in the new section was carried out by a two-layer convolution neural network. The model has been trained to mark films, using more than fifty information parameters about the project itself and its author, as well as expert evaluations from the past years of the festival.
The organisers point out: “It was important for us that the model had its own unique taste and selection criteria, so it is very likely that the films it features will differ significantly from the final expert evaluations”. The total length of the program is 47 minutes.
