Viborg Animation Festival

– a celebration of All Things Animated!

VAF 2021 is over and we want to thank all who attended – see you next year!

Animation is films, art, games, communication, and much more than that. VAF gives you the opportunity to experience all this in Viborg in week 39. The festival is divided into four tracks to make it easier to choose between the many exciting events: Film – Culture – Industry – ANIMOK. From experiences in the cinema or museum, to professional as well as family events – VAF’s got it all!

The festival is packed with animation activities and there is something for everyone

– check out the full program for 2021 below.

VAF is a part of The Animation Workshop and VIA University College
