Kaboom Animation Festival is the one-stop-shop for the latest and greatest in all things animated. Ranging from cutting-edge experimental arthouse to colorful stories for families and kids, Kaboom will cater to the animation needs of all. Yes, even yours, my amazing weirdo friend!

After a successful online festival in the spring of 2021, we are now looking forward to the next offline festival in the spring of 2022! Call for entries is now open.


Kaboom Animation Festival is the love child of two animation festivals. In 2019 KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival and Holland Animation Film Festival (HAFF) realized that their differences could be used to complement each other, and propel themselves forward into the future. SO we decided to join forces and work on our shared, progressive goal of a brand new animation festival that truly has it all.

Kaboom Animation Festival is now a yearly event where professionals and fans meet, inspire each other, and enjoy the latest and greatest that animation has to offer. All while celebrating the Dutch animation industry.
