Festival Submissions

Call for Entries

In 2021, our beloved Kaboom Animation Festival will move to March. We don’t accept film submissions anymore, as the deadline is expired.

We aim to combine cutting-edge experimental arthouse with the very best of what animation has to offer. Think fun, art, awe and wonder, on the big screen and behind it, and for all generations.

Due to the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 regulations, Kaboom Animation Festival has decided to skip the boutique edition that was planned for 2020. Instead, we’re focusing on our full-scale edition in Spring 2021. All films already submitted for 2020 are automatically eligible for 2021.


You should have submitted your film before the 1st of October 2020, for your film to be concidered for the festival edition in Spring 2021.


If you submitted your film, you might get your animated project screened at Kaboom Animation Festival, the one-stop shop for the latest and greatest in all things animated. During the festival, all animation lovers of the Netherlands and our international guests will be admiring your project. Additionally, it might be selected for one of the competitions at Kaboom Animation Festival, with awards and prize money to be won.


After the submission, your film will be taken into consideration by our selection committee. You will be informed about selection and programming by 1 December (concerning the 2021 edition). If it is selected, you will receive further information about the master copy, festival accreditation and much more.

In case your film has been selected we ask you to send us a master copy of your film that complies with our master copy specs.

If you have questions regarding your submission or the process, please get in touch with
