PAF – Festival of Film Animation is well known for its examination of the phenomena of animation in the wider context of cinematography and visual studies.
This year, PAF puts an unprecedented emphasis on audio-visual installations which are at the festival present in really record number and technical demands.
On top of it, the installations will be also in areas at which the visitors of PAF did not have a chance to look in the past (e.g. Lectorium Medium or Caroline etc.). The former Jesuit boarding school, in whose unique setting the Festival of Film Animation takes place, benefiting from its fantastic genius loci, will thus reveal its secrets from the dark burrow in its dungeons to the Gallery in the attic.
All the installations of major Czech and foreign artists (Gábor Ösz, Ernest Edmonds, Takeshi Murata, Yoshi Sodeoka, Jiří Havlíček, Aleš Čermák, Tomáš Svoboda, Jakub Hošek and Nik Timková, Max Capacity and others) will be thus accessible not only to the accredited visitors, but also to the general public for the whole duration of the festival – and it's completely free.
Moreover, the organizers decided to include for the very first time in the twelve year history of PAF the guided tours on all the installations within Konvikt. The tours will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, meeting with the "guide" is always at 2pm in the Atrium at the Konvikt ground floor.
The exhibition programme is this year thematically connected mostly with the programme sections Kinetics of Image and Colourful 50s, and is taking place not only at Konvikt, but also at other locations within Olomouc – for example at Gallery U Mloka, Vitrína Deniska or "nomadic" Gallery dé situated in a tram.
