KLIK! takes Dutch animation to Spain
KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival is again pushing the international frontiers of animation. In May, this Dutch based animation festival is running a special programme in Barcelona during the Ficomic, an annually held international comic fair. This year the Netherlands is host country at this comic festival and therefore involved with all kind of cultural activities. During the four days of the fair KLIK! presents in cooperation with the Dutch embassy in Madrid the best contemporary Dutch animation from within the Disseny Hub, the cities’ established design centre.
The programme consists of a spectrum of short movies from student animators to ruling movies of established professionals, all recently modelled, kneaded, drawed and produced. So take this chance and come to see what the Dutch animation scene is all about!
On Friday the 7th of May there is a possibility of joining an animation seminar with talks from professionals like Erik van Schaaik and Patrick Raats. These well-known Dutch animators talk about their recent work, the Dutch animation scene and in what way they’re joining up the design and illustration field.
