PAF Olomouc, Dec 1 – 4

30 November 2016

The 15th edition of PAF (Festival of Film Animation and Contemporary Art) is taking place around the Czech city of Olomouc, running December 1 to 4.

PAF’s aim is to bring the practice of animation into the context of cinematography, media studies and visual arts. This year’s theme will be ‘Why Look at Animals’ inspired by John Berger‘s seminal book of the same name that explores “the humanizing of animals and the significance of zoological gardens.” 

The event will be host to over seventy screenings, as well as exhibitions, installations, live performances, talks and workshops, featuring Lolina (Inga Copeland) & John T. Gast & Edith Karlson, Bill Kouligas & Harm van den Dorpel, M.E.S.H. & Michael Guidetti and Music For Your Plants, among many others.
