ANIMATION BREAKDOWN - The Best of KLIK!: Contemporary Shorts from Around the World

Co-presented by GLAS Animation and the Netherlands Film Fund.

Following the shorts program, Dutchies Joost Lieuwma (director of Leaving Home), Mathijs Stegink (animator and KLIK! programmer), Tünde Vollenbroek (animation producer and KLIK!s programming director) will join us for a Q&A.

Every November, we get awful jealous of animation fans in Europe — for that’s when they gleefully converge at KLIK!: the annual animation fest centered in Amsterdam. Lucky for us, KLIK! has just brought Stateside a best-of-the-best rundown from the many short films in their ever-growing arsenal. Come enjoy winners like Spin (Germany, KLIK! Political Animation Award 2010) and Rabbit and Deer (Hungary, KLIK! Amsterdam Audience Award 2013), alongside eye-catching shorts like My…My… (China) and Luke and Lotta (Poland).
