The curatorial Other Visions competition that oriented towards mapping audio-visual production in the Czech context, has announced this year's winners. Pavel Ryška, this year's curator, selected 10 films to be screened at the festival out of the 46 that were registered. The international jury consisting of Bob Sabiston, Iván Forgács and Birgitt Wagner gave the award to Alexandra Moralesová for her audio-visual work Skin (2011) and she thus becomes the first female award winner in the five year history of the competition.
The Jury appreciated the complexity of the perception of the past and the fact that the film at the same time points out that the technology which we use for recording important moments and faces is imperfect and unreliable. The Jury was particularly attracted by the approach to ambiguity of the recording of past events.
The special Award went to MONOSCOPE no. 3 (monkeyking legend) made in January 2011 by Martin Búřil. The Jury highlighted an innovative concept hidden behind the origin of the film itself and also the originality of the visual disruption of the traditional perception of animation background and foreground. The festival audience's choice was Kryštof Pešek's Feature (2011), the film thematizing the boundaries of light and darkness that penetrated the whole Festival of Film Animation.
Within the framework of the fifth year of the competition, the Festival of Film Animation prepares a catalogue of significant events related to the development of the Czech audio-visual arts after 2000.
