We are very happy to announce that Marika Kupková, the art curator and film historian, becomes the curator of Other Visions competition section at PAF 2014.
In 2007 Other Visions section has become a competition section of the Festival of Film Animation in Olomouc. The competition aims to map out the moving image, film and video production within the Czech Republic and focuses on the border forms occurring on the boundaries of animation, experimental film and video art.
The selection of ten competition films is unique every year just because of diverse interests of the addressed curators who select ten competition films attending the competition.
The curator works in TIC Gallery in Brno, or Youth Gallery. Her curatorial activities are focused especially on media and social self-reflection of the contemporary arts. She is also involved in the dramaturgy of B16, the festival of short films. She is a lecturer at the Theory of interactive media department, Faculty of arts, Masaryk University in Brno and at the Film studies department, Faculty of philosophy and arts, Charles University in Prague.
