The Prague Centre for Contemporary Art DOX hosted the presentation of the Festival of Film Animation and the Other Visions competition.
The presentation of the Other Visions competition, which is a part of the PAF festival, took place on Thursday 25 February 2010 in a full hall of the Prague Centre for Contemporary Art DOX. At first the director of the festival Alexandr Jančík outlined the history, conception and direction of the festival. He was followed by the programme manager Martin Mazanec who provided the audience with his comment on the idea and context of the origin of the Other Visions competition and the question of animation in contemporary videoart. All the winning films of 2007-2009 were screened during the early evening with personal attendance of their authors that all met together here for the first time. Each of the projection was followed by a speech of their authors who tried to explain to the audience the principles of their work, methods of creating their work and the idea behind it. The audience had the opportunity to watch films by Viktor Takáč (Mr. Möbius Lives on the 2nd Floor; winner of 2007), Martin Kohout (Moonwalk; winner of 2008), Daniel Pitín (The Lost Architect; winner of 2009) and Matěj Smetana (Manual 2: Trilobite; the Audience Award winner of 2009).
