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.

The Brno artist David Možný's film Rahova became the winner of the Other Visions competition section. The three-member jury appreciated this film for its excellence, conceptually and technically, in image and sound. According to the jury, the film composites an inside view into the architecture and the elements of construction showing the vulnerability of a formerly pre-fabricated living environment. It shows dystopia in a playful way, rather than depressing. Rahova was also awarded by the audience.
