This year we have invited the British pioneer of computer-based animation, Ernest Edmonds, who has studied mathematics and philosophy and works as a professor at many academic institutions. Since the end of the 1960s Ernest Edmonds has dealt with computer-based animated images.
Besides his authorial production he will also speak about his own scientific research.
PAF Cult is always represented by a personality who literally touches animation, cinematography and visual arts, who gives at the festival a masterclass, in which she introduces her work or theoretical postulates.
In past, the honorary position of PAF Cult was occupied inter alia by eg. by legendary Czech director of animated films Břetislav Pojar (2003), Austrian experimental filmmaker Peter Kubelka (2008), Croatian guru of experimental cinema Ivan Ladislav Galeta (2009), Bob Sabiston (2011), director and VJ Peter Greenaway (2010) or Dutch internet artist Constant Dullaart (2012).
