Aport animation is a platform for the presentation of new projects as well as the return of filmmakers and artists who have been cooperating with PAF in the long term. This year is unique in this respect because it is the first time the monographic catalogues (Martin Kohout, Jan Šrámek aka VJ Kolouch) have been published within the PAF edition. There will be the premiere of the visual concert performance of Tomáš Dvořák aka Floex, together with the visual artist Veronika Vlková. Internet projects dealing with cultural phenomena and other projects that we follow, either from the very beginning or in the continuous process of development, will be introduced.
