The TAA (TAA) is the annual competition for the best final exam films, shorts and animations from all Dutch art academies and from Switzerland. A team of expert scouts selects the best audiovisual works during the graduation exhibitions. During the screening, the works will be judged by a jury consisting of prominent figures from the visual arts and film world. This evening they select the winner for the TAA and the Best Foreign Film Award. This year the TAA 2016 jury consists of: Roos Gortzak (director Vleeshal, Middelburg), Giovanni Carmine (director Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, Switzerland), Sabine Himmelsbach (Haus der Elektronicen Künste Basel, Switzerland) and artist duo and winners TAA 2009 Witte van Hulzen & Sander Breure. The winners will receive residency in Switzerland and Rotterdam. During this residency, the young artists are given the opportunity to develop further and to become acquainted with a different culture.
