Tough Competition of Non-Narrative Animation and Music Videos

20 | 02

From more than 250 submitted music videos and non-narrative films, 44 have made into the final competition. This year, 4 Czech representatives (a new record) will compete for the Animorpha for the best Abstract and Non-Narrative animation.

They will have to compete for instance against renowned experimenters Paul Bush and Thomas Renolder. Also Faiyaz Jafri, who was a member of our jury last year, returns with his latest film. As is typical for this competition category, the authors work with more or less abstract motives. They draw, programme on computers and they do not hesitate to use real objects. They breathe life into them and find a hidden poetry in their movements. They do not fear engaged messages nor humour.

The selection of twenty music videos will be very diverse this year – not only artistically, but also musically. Let us mention one big comeback – a new music video for a song Glass Onion by The Beatles. But also music videos of Czech bands Khoiba and Boris Carloff have a chance to win.
