Call for authors to submit their works for the 8th year of the only competition section of PAF - OTHER VISIONS 2014!
Works can be submitted via on-line form prior to October 20, 2014.
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.
In the competition is announced the Main prize, awarded by the international jury, and Audience award.
In previous years the curators of Other Visions were David Kořínek, Dušan Zahoranský, Pavel Ryška, Sylva Poláková, Lenka Dolanová, Martin Fišr and Friendly Film, the members of the international jury were among others Takeshi Murata, András Cséfalvay, Martin Arnold, Ivan Ladislav Galeta, Pip Chodorov, Constant Dullaart and Gabriele Jutz.
