The Cyberpunk Now Film Festival Kicks Off This Summer With A Media Hackathon

The Cyberpunk Now Film Festival Kicks Off This Summer As Part of The Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) 2020 Conference



Cyberpunk Inc. today announced The Cyberpunk Now Film Festival, an all-new five-day media production hackathon, which is part of the Hackers on Planet Earth 2020 Conference. Hackers on Planet Earth (HOPE) is one of the largest and longest-running hacker community events in the world, typically attracting thousands of attendees in New York City, gone virtual this summer courtesy of coronavirus. 

What the world needs most right now is good communication. Express your feelings, expose atrocities, share what’s wrong, and share ideas for solutions. For those of us who don’t know how to make vaccines, this might actually be the most productive thing we can do right now.

“It seems like we're currently living in the overturned tech-saturated hyper-real world predicted by the cyberpunk literature of the 80s and 90s,” said Cyberpunk Inc. CEO Charles Beckwith. “This is a part of HOPE, so we ask our other participants, can you make a better cyberpunk short film than a bunch of real hackers? At a time when people are eager to connect after months of being locked down, and the usual ‘hacker summer camp’ events are postponed, we’re taking the creative spirit of cyberpunk and the DIY spirit of the hacker community and giving it all a spin with a top-secret challenge, so everyone can come together and enjoy the sense of connection found by making and watching movies.” 

The Cyberpunk Now Film Festival will kick off on Thursday, July 25. Participants will have five days to team up, brainstorm, write, produce, edit, finish, and upload their finished films to the submission portal by the deadline July 30th. The full programming line-up and ticket information will be announced in the coming weeks. 

Winners will be screened as they are announced in a HOPE 2020 conference video feed, with the Grand Prize winner being announced during the conference's Closing Ceremonies on August 2, 2020. For the latest updates, please visit CyberpunkFestival.com
