Viborg Animation Festival – VAF celebrates the diversity of animation and seeks to show that animation is more than entertainment by exploring areas of art, animation pedagogy, and its tremendous ability as a means of communication.

VAF shows a number of animated films for children and adults, with these films coming from all over the world but also highlighting films and projects made in Viborg.

Exhibitions interpret the relationship between art and animation, while workshops and conferences for professionals all around the city show a diverse crowd of activated and relevant concerns what animation is truly capable of.

As Denmark's largest international animation festival, VAF shows that animation is art, craft, teaching, and science dissemination.

In 2020 Viborg Animation Festival invited the audience to a tremendous film program, Expanded Animation Exhibtions, ANIMOK, ANIDOX:VR, the pop-up exhibition Khora × Viborg Kunsthal xVAF, animation workshops, conferences, seminars, talks, masterclasses, and much more.
