KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival 2017

KLIK Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary: 17-22 October 2017 at EYE Filmmuseum

We're celebrating our tenth edition with six days of animation-awesomeness. Expect something for everyone: Whether you're an animation fanboy/girl, animation professional, student, or designer.

Brace yourself for a dazzling showcase of the world’s best animated shorts and features, matched with fine presentations, workshops and zany parties. Immerse yourself in absolute animation frenzy and take part in this warm celebration of all that is animation. On the occasion of the anniversary, we will also take a retrospective look at our favorite animations from the past ten years.

With this year's themed program 'Never Grow Up' we put the spotlight on animations that question common conceptions of age and life stages. What does it mean to be grown up? What if you refuse to act your age? Expect feature films, presentations, short film compilations and more.

The Art of Daron Nefcy | Star vs. the Forces of Evil

We are extremely excited to confirm Daron Nefcy, creator and executive producer of the popular Disney TV series Star vs. the Forces of Evil, as one of our special guests.

Daron’s presentation will cover a little of everything: from ideas and storyboards, to design, sound, and of course animation. Daron herself is a rising animation star and only the second woman ever to create an animated series for Disney Television Animation.

She’ll also answer questions on (almost) anything, be it monsters or Mewni. So fangirls and boys, don’t be afraid to get all geeky.

Specials: Pre-premiere Loving Vincent

For our birthday edition, we're proud to bring you the pre-premiere of Loving Vincent: the world's first ever fully painted feature film, bringing the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his story. First shot as live action film every one of the 65.000 frames of the film is a hand-painted oil-painting, created by 125 professional painters. As remarkable as Vincent's paintings are his passionate, ill-fated life, and mysterious death.

Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman, produced by Poland's BreakThru Films and UK's Trademark Films.

Theme Program: Wrinkles

A charming and polite prison movie, that’s the best way we can describe this black-hearted comedy. Wrinkles is a Spanish film about overlooked seniors locked away behind the iron gates of a retirement home.

Directed by Ignacio Ferreras and based on a graphic novel by Paco Roca, the story follows Emilio, a retired bank manager whose son puts him in a care home when he starts to become too forgetful.

Theme Program: Boy and the World

Our theme program Never Grow Up is starting to take shape. We're thrilled to announce that we'll be screening Alê Abreu's Academy Award-nominated masterpiece Boy and the World.

This unique feature film is a riotous explosion of music and color. It depicts the wonders and struggles of the modern world as seen through the eyes of a young boy. The boy’s journey unfolds like a tapestry, taking on greater complexity as his small world expands.
