Additional Information

Moving images have a major impact on the world view of children. Film education is aimed at learning to understand and use these images and to express yourself creatively. Film education is not yet a compulsory part of the curriculum, but is in line with the core objectives 54, 55 and 56 for artistic education. A link is also possible with learning objectives of language, world orientation and citizenship, among other things.


Animation film is part of their daily lives for many children. That makes it an accessible art form that is available to everyone. From this well-known form, Kaboom works on programs that challenge students artfully and push their limits. The festival offers workshops, guest lessons and film screenings in the classroom and on the big screen. By means of challenging, artistic, progressive and groundbreaking animation, children learn to watch, assess and interpret animation.


The creativity of children is stimulated in a way that fits in with their experience. Through the programs they discover that they themselves are creative makers and can shape their imagination.


In the province of Utrecht we collaborate with Kunst Centraal in the program Beeld voor Beeld (Dutch only).


Kaboom Animation festival is part of the Network Film Education, the national platform for a high-quality and varied offer in the field of film education
