VAF Viborg Animation Festival 2019

Project Details


Viborg Animation Festival (VAF) is Denmark’s largest animation festival with more than 22.000 visitors in 2018. The festival focuses on animation as culture and craft in all aspects, and seeks to show that animation is more than entertainment by exploring areas of art, pedagogics, science, new technologies, and the tremendous power of animation as means of communication.
VAF shows a wealth of animated short and feature films for children, youngsters and adults, and the strong international program represents both the artistic, and the entertainment side of animation. Exhibitions interpret the relationship between art and animation, showing concept art and original works, while workshops, seminars and conferences for professions and business expand the potential of animation.
For VAF 2019 the festival theme is “Human Impact”, and the guest country is South Korea. This year’s festival will be infused with both the Human Impact theme, and host world famous guests from South Korea.
In 2019 the festival takes place from the 23rd - 29th of September 2019, and will present the following awards: Student Film Competition, VAF Best Animated Feature, VAF Best Animated Short, ANIDOX VR Award, and ANIMOK Award (kids films).
