PAF in flash art hungary

In the current December issue of Hungarian mutation of prestigious art magazine Flash Art can be read (among other things, obviously) also quite extensive interview on PAF!


Tuesday 17th of December 2013 in Prague, the awards ceremony for artists over 35 organized by initiative Umělec má cenu (Artist has a price) took place. The name o the price is variable according the name of its current laureate, and is given as a gesture from the artists and theoreticians of younger generation to the older generation of artists.

The Prize from Vladimír Kokolia was passed to Martin Zet who thus became laureate for 2014.




The last day of PAF will be marked by Colourful 50s. During two blocks, Slideshow Forenoon and Slideshow Afternoon, Pavel Ryška will comment the period films and Pavel Pohorský will consequently introduce the Czechoslovak projectors.


More than fifteen programme blocks will take place from the afternoon to the late night. The participants of the Lunchmeat Visual Workshop know exactly what to do. However, this is not the only workshop at this year's PAF. Tereza Damcová's workshop is arranged for parents and their children. Sewing of masks will be followed by commented screening of fairy tales which involve both animation, patchwork and performance.

JV vitez

This year in Other Visions competition participated in total 49 works. Based on curatorial judgement made by David Kořínek, only 10 works from all were selected to participate in the competition. They were confronted with a classic projection situation in the Corpus Christy Chapel and with the gallery situation, since they were presented during the whole festival in the Attic Gallery at Konvikt as an installation, thus subjected to the constant judgement of the international jury as well as the festival audience. The audience could vote for their favourite by inserting the completed ballot paper into the present ballot box.

The winner of the competition Other Visions 2013 was announced during the closing ceremony of the 12th Festival of Film Animation, which took place in the Sunday evening, 8th of December 2013.


International jury consisting of Takeshi Murata, András Cséfalvay and Ondřej Jakubec has pronounced as follows:


Concerning the programme, Saturday is even more busy than Friday. The participants of Lunchmeat Visuals Workshopu keep on following the procedures leading to animation and visualisation of their own creative ideas.

Parents and their children have an opportunity to attend the presentation of Kuba and Lou Sanitrák's animated project Lesokraj the Story.


The programme of the twelfth Festival of Film Animation will be opened by vernissages. The installation Relics, which is prepared for the mobile Gallery dé by Pavel Ryška, will present the selection of significant personalities of the 1950s.

If you come at the tram station Náměstí Republiky at 4:10 pm, where the mobile gallery starts its way, you can be sure that you do not miss anything and you can move to other vernissages together with PAF organizers.


Few days ago, we have published the names of Other Visions 2013 ten finalists.

Concerts, VJ sets or musical performances are also a part of the PAF programme. Moreover, this year there will be a unique workshop Vjingu held in collaboration with the audiovisual platform  Lunchmeat and FAMU's research project - mediabaze.cz.
