PAF IS NOT OVER

The 13th year of the festival may have ended, however, the year-long running activities of PAF platform are still going on.

Since 2008 these activities have been taking place for the whole year. Many exhibitions, screenings, presentations and collaborations on both Czech and international festivals taking place "from New York to Iceland" as well as the traditional summer biennial in Ostopovice u Brna have been planned for the next year. In 2015 PAF will focus on presentation of Czech audio-visual art and deeper understanding of animation

The publication named Net Art in virtual and physical space of its presentation (ed. Marie Meixnerová) will be released within the PAF Edition in the following weeks.

Therefore we are assured that we are going to meet not only at the next year's festival of film animation and contemporary art, which will take place from the 3rd to the 6th of December 2015 in Olomouc, but also at other events organised as well as co-organised by PAF all over the world.
