The PAF Festival of Film Animation and Contemporary Art is on at the Czech city of Olomouc, across venues from December 3 to 6.
Going under the theme of ‘What is Animation?’ the festival’s focus is on what the press release calls an “updated view of the history of film animation and the current trend of connecting animation with spatial-light experiments.
The programme follows the recent Festivals of Live Cinema held in New York and the Norwegian city of Stavanger – PAF New York and Screen City Moving Image Festival respectively – and will host a number of events, including exhibitions, screenings, lectures, presentations, workshops and live audio-visual performances.
PAF also welcomes guest curator Pavel Ryška, with his Wild ’60s section of the programme that is one of several other ones that include the Other Visions Czech animation competition, Aport Animation and PAF Art, as well as Animation Beyond Animation, which will include contributions by Lotic, Vessel, Samson Kambalu, Takashi Makino, and TCF.
