On October 14, ARC Academy started its fifth academic year. Milin Djalaliev and Antony Christov welcomed students and teachers, wishing them success in their studies and to strive to use every opportunity to impart and learn new knowledge.
Our guests were our partners from the game studios, who are actively involved in the work of the Academy through speakers, scholarships, and visits to their offices. We thank everyone for their support over the years and America for Bulgaria Foundation, who have been with us since the beginning of 2019.
At the opening of the new academic year, inspirational presentations were given on how to succeed in the game and film industries. Borislav Bogdanov, program director at ARC Academy and art director at Snapshot Games, Nikolay Dimitrov, director of the Game Programming program and technical director at Gameloft Sofia, Evgeny Tenev, lead game producer at Creative Assembly Sofia and Antony Christov, shared their knowledge and experience with the students.
The event was joined by special guests – Yariv Lerner, executive director of Nu Boyana Film Studios, and Viktor Trichkov, owner of Cinemotion. They greeted the students and told them about the film industry and the opportunities for development in Bulgaria.
We are proud that in these five years, ARC Academy has built a close-knit community, with 47 lecturers now teaching in our five programs and 175 successful graduates. Over 84% of our alumni community is realized in the creative industries, in studios in and outside Bulgaria.
We wish our students easy learning and recent professional success!
