A new visual is here!

The visuals of the 13th Prague Short Film Festival were designed by Zuzana Lednická from Studio Najbrt. Zuzana Lednická (1974) graduated in toy design and production technologies from the Secondary School of Applied Arts and went on to graduate in graphic design under Prof. Zdeněk Ziegler from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague (1993–1998). She has been working for Studio Najbrt since 1995. She received numerous design awards including a bronze medal at the 2012 Best Book Design from all over the World competition for her design of a book about Libuše Niklová. She is also proud of her work on books about the photographer Eva Fuková, Zdeněk Ziegler, and the book Czech 100 Design Icons as well as posters for the play Bez kyslíku and the film Bez doteku, and visuals for the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. In 2006, she created her brand mojemoje which produces limited-edition bags, porcelain goods, snowboards, and accessories for children. She commented on her visual concept of the upcoming festival as follows: “Every day, each and every one of us unwittingly becomes a momentary main character of the films taking place in the streets, hotel hallways, subway halls, and other public areas. Random moments of our lives are constantly being recorded by surveillance cameras and the question is – who’s watching them?”

The individual pictures were taken by the Czech photographer Václav Jirásek. He was born in 1965, graduated in applied graphic arts from the Secondary School of Applied Arts in Brno (1984) under Dalibor Chatrný and went on to graduate in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. From 1989 to 1993, he was a member of the art group Bratrstvo with whom he exhibited his works anonymously. He is a self-taught photographer and presently focuses on no specific topic. The common denominator of his works is his interest in mysteries, masks, irony, decadence and art recycling. His works are included for example in the collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, Moravian Gallery in Brno, The Art Institute of Chicago, Museum Ludwig Köln, and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
