It is a pleasure to be able to share with you the VAF-Artist of #VAF22 - Sara Koppel @nakedlovefilm 

Sara joined the animation industry already as a teenanger and never left the drawing board. Her unique style is both colorful and poetic and always handpainted.

”To me, animation is to live. Drawing with pen and paper and seeing everything come to life is an endless joy for me. The illusion of life and movement is a wonderfully poetic, wild, and sensual way to express myself"

At the Festival you will have the chance to meet Sara for walks in Viborg City showing of her amazing AR-works, and she will also be designing labels for our VAF-beer brewed by the local @oelluminati . Experience this and much more from September 26 to October 2, 2022
