Competition Other Visions is the one and only competition section of PAF – Festival of Film Animation. It aims to map out the field of moving images of film and video in the Czech Republic. By curated selections, it tries to enable the current domestic audiovisual production that find itself on the border line between fine arts, video art and animation to be more accessible and openly accepted by the public. Every year's selection has been unique thanks to the various interests of the curators who select ten nominated works. The main criteria for submission into competition are the premise that the work is possible to be screened in the cinema and is not older eighteen months. Both professional and amateur artists can submit their moving images.

Competition and curatorial selection Other Visions is in its seven year of constant enabling the contemporary Czech audiovisual works that find themselves on the border line between fine arts, video art and animation to be more accessible and openly accepted by the public. For the competition, any works dealing with classical animation, manipulated images, text, live action sequences or performance recording etc. are accepted. Working with moving image of film or video in the widest possible sense of the word is thus expected.
