In 2000, it launched the first festival in the Czech Republic dedicated to film animation, PAF – Festival of Film Animation. Since 2002, it is held annually in the baroque buildings of the Arts Centre of Palacký University, Olomouc. On the occasion of its 15th edition it was renamed PAF – Festival of Film Animation and Contemporary Art to highlight its embrace of the broad definition of animation spanning cinematography and visual arts.
