#VAF22 will as always present the wonderful experimental short film category in our competition program. Submissions are open right now.

The experimental category gives the artist free rein to explore the abstract, absurd and technical side of animation and storytelling. 

In #VAF21 Natalia Ilchuk won for her film "kitchen.blend", the film interestingly shows how she digitally reconstructed her grandparent's kitchen.

Nothing is cozier than sitting inside looking out on the snow and enjoying something hot and delicious. The VAF-dog is a big fan of going out and having a good time during the winter.

Viborg is full of lovely places to go! During #VAF21 we were lucky to have some fantastic collaborators that made sure our guests got lots of mouth-watering meals, drinks, and snacks.
