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!

‘We celebrated our LEGENDARY edition in March and April 2022 and look forward to the next edition in spring 2023. Our new festival dates just got announced: 24th – 29th March in Utrecht and 30th March – 2nd April in Amsterdam! If you want to be updated, follow us online, via socials or sign up for our newsletter.’


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.
