Calling all animators!

The KLIK! foundation is a national and international force in provocative quality animation. With the festival as KLIK!'s flagship, and other exciting activities happening in its wake, they bring their passion for and knowledge of animation to a wide audience.

KLIK! treats animation as an independent art form instead of treating it as a genre of film and aims to make the medium of animation, in the broadest sense of the word, accessible to a wider audience in fresh and exciting new ways to stimulate the emancipation of the medium as a fully realized art form. To this end, KLIK! has organised the annual KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival since its inception in 2007and a host of other activities throughout the year.

Please note: Even if you have a project that does not fit in one of the categories (e.g. feature films, interactive projects, or installations) it might still be presented during the festival by submitting it outside of the competition.
