Other Visions competition is a curatorial selection of audio visual works. It aims to appreciate and to popularize the work of professionals as well as amateurs that penetrate through artistic and film scene in an original way. Other Visions dramaturgy searches for both visually and narratively original projects on the border of arts, video art and animation. The competition is implemented within the framework of the Festival of Film Animation that however works with category of animation within much wider interpretative framework than it is usual. Any classical animation, work with manipulated image, text, sequences of feature films and record of a performance are also accepted. Thus the work with moving image of film and video in the widest possible grasp is expected.
The ten selected works will be shown and installed during the duration of the festival in the premises of the Art Centre of Palacký University, Olomouc. All of the selected works will be presented in the accompanying catalogue. Every year the ten competition films and videos depend on curatorial selection of challenged theorists and artists of Czech artistic and film environment; every year the curator as well as the three-member jury is different.
