Few days ago, we have published the names of Other Visions 2013 ten finalists.
Now it is time to reveal the names of those who will decide about the winner.
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 within 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. The final ten works are every year presented at events (co)organized by PAF at home and abroad.
The final ten works that could enter the competition is every year chosen from all the work submitted by invited independent curator. These ten works are subsequently installed at festival premises in gallery situation plus screened in the cinema situation.
About the winner decides a three-member international jury, which this year consists of:

is a visual artist, animator and digital artist. He graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with an orientation towards animation, video and film. He works with various animation techniques – from hand-painted films, through manipulation with video code, to 3D CG rendering. His work is connected to the development of the technique of "electronic painting", by means of glitches and computer errors, and with classical animation and archetypes from the history of cinematography and animated film. On his videos he has cooperated for many years with the musician Robert Beatty.
Ondřej Jakubec (*1976)
is an art historian, university teacher and curator. He is interested in architecture, Renaissance art in Central Europe and, in terms of cultural history, he is concerned with the issues of confessionality, patronage and the sepulchral culture of the early modern period. He worked as a curator in the Olomouc Museum of Art between 2004 and 2012, where he organized a number of short-term exhibitions (alongside the permanent exhibition in the Olomouc Archdiocesan Museum) oriented towards the presentation of the art and cultural aspects of the early modern period, such as Olomouc Baroque Visual Culture in the City between 1620 and 1780. Since 2008 he has worked as an assistant professor in the Department of the History of Art at Masaryk University in Brno and he is currently the Head of the Department.

In his work, which is often in the form of video art, he focuses on the issues of the mechanization and administration of meditation and emotion. He creates fiction in which he examines alternative forms of the present as well as the future. What is more, he projects his interest in music, mathematics and language into his work. At PAF, Cséfalvay will present his three videos including the new one Compsognation.
