On Friday, 23 February, the Film Festival and Seminar 4 Elements opened in Banská Štiavnica and the winner of the Other Visions SK competition was announced.
The seminar took place in Kafe&Klub Spojár and introduced Eva Filová’s curatorial selection of Other Visions SK 2017. After the screening of all the videos, the winning video, selected by the international jury, was announced.
Other Visions SK 2017 – the competition of the Slovak moving image, organised in cooperation with the Slovak festival 4 Elements, has found its winner. This year’s curator Eva Filová selected a total of eight works; they were first presented at last year’s PAF. “I decided to select eight videos for the final round with the main criterion being the conceptual clarity and compactness of the final work. In the final selection we find (seemingly) simple and playful videos and formally mature artistic concepts, poetic-meditative considerations and space intervention.” At the festival, PAF was represented by Nela Klajbanová, the coordinator of the Other Visions competition, and Jiří Neděla who was a member of the Other Visions SK jury.
