Even though every single program at KLIK! 2012 is worth visiting, here are the absolute not to miss highlights.
We kick off the festival with an afternoon filled with child-friendly activities. But after sending the kids off to bed, we really get started with the Official Opening of the Fifth Edition of The KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival! Well offer a tantalising glimpse of the festival program, listen to an inspiring speech by our Creative Director Yvonne van Ulden and raise our glasses filled with fizzy drinks with yall to the bright shiny future of animation.
On Thursday, were all about science as our Symposium There Will Be (Animated) Blood will delve into the relationships between violence and animation, suffering and comedy and will hopefully teach us all to be better people... or at least laugh harder at misfortune. In the evening we take a traumatizing trip down memory lane with the screening of the classic film Watership Down. And dont forget that our International Competitions kick in on Thursday, so get those voting muscles all good and warmed up, folks!
On Friday we have an array of activities, workshops and talks aimed at the people who make our festival possible: the hard-working animators! Check out our KLIK! Special events for more info. For the general audience who have graced us with their presence, were throwing a South Park Palooza, honouring our very favorite quiet mountain town and its inhabitants. And were very privileged to present the official Dutch premiere of the French feature film Le Magasin des Suicides.
Oh My Glob! We run a serious risk of overheating the EYE and melting it with all our overheated animated goodness! Its the last day of our competition programs and in the evening, well hand out the highly coveted KLIK! Awards. AND theres our Cartoon Network program featuring their hottest animated show Adventure Time. The day will culminate to a riveting, quivering high with our riotous party KLIK! 'n Roll which is guaranteed to become the stuff of legends! Algebraic!
Were screening the very best of the already funktastic program in our appropriately named Best of KLIK! 2012 program, so you can get a concentrated dose of awesome animation, shot right into your solar plexus. Well also screen a selection of the animated work of the esteemed South African artist William Kentridge. And were screening the beautiful feature film Ernest et Célestine for the benefit of young and old. Lastly, well bid you a fond farewell during the KLIK! Closing Ceremony with the promise that well be back next year!
