Years running: 15 (since 2008)


International Animation Film Festival.


KLIK! aims to show that animation is much more than the simplistic or childish medium that high-brow culture purports it to be. Animation is more than film, it is a unique art form with its own visual grammar and endless possibilities and purposes. KLIK! strives to stimulate the Dutch animation sector and provide it with an international showcase.
