The programme of the 11th year of the Festival of Film Animation will be opened by the
vernissages. Kristýna Lutzová's loginlogout, which thematizes the boundary between real and virtual worlds, will take place in the Gallery U Mloka. Opening of Petr Krátký's 1/16 will take place in Vitrína Deniska and PAF 2012 opening ceremony will follow. The ceremony includes opening of the group exhibition Model. Urbanism Animated, which thematizes a model of a city space and its interiors in an imaginary urban scheme.
The installations implemented on the premises of Konvikt will afterwards be introduced to festival visitors. For example, the British artist Mark Fell is coming not only with his concert performance, but also with the light and sound installation Factoid #3. The first festival screening will be the film selection prepared by the Viennese company sixpackfilm within the What is Animation? block. The audience can look forward to the midnight screening of The BQE (Brooklyn Queens Expressway). The musician and filmmaker Sufjan Stevens captures this New York express way in this original urban symphony.
The music guests Jonny Fox aka Aches will introduce their AV performance. The sci-fi audio-visual performance Hunting Boghor, which connects the experimental projection of 16mm film and live electro-acoustic music performance, will be shown by David Šmitmajer, Jiří Rouš and František Týmal. The Thursday festival programme will be concluded by Johana Švarcová’s DJ set in Café Tungsram Transit.
