Event Details

“Whats cooking in DK” is an annual focus on Danish animation during VAF. This year we’ll dive into animated tv-series and shows, and get a glance into the development and succes with current Danish productions. 

Animated tv-shows is a central part of entertainmetn for kids today, both with national broadcasters as well as commercial streaming services. But the channels are booming with foreign content and there is a lack in animated shows with relatable stories from Danish life and culture.  

We will take a look at DR’s massive investment in animation, as well as Animation Denmark’s work to support and evolve the Danish animation industry, which is currently booming. There are many ideas and great ambition among producers, studios and filmmakers, but how far along are we? What potentials lay ahead? And what challenges? What is needed to make the Danish animation industry flourish?
