Viborg Animation Festival

Are you passionate about animation and drawing? If so, Viborg has a lot to offer in 2012, where the very first Viborg Animation Festival takes place.

This year´s largest cultural event in Viborg starts gearing up during the summer, when the town is invaded by movie presentations, illustrations and live animations made by animators, artists and event planners from all over the world. The centre of Viborg becomes a large playground when the animation Workshop takes you and your smartphone on a digital treasure hunt.

Viborg animation Festival takes place from October 28th to november 4th and offers you theatrical performances, exhibitions, cartoon competitions and the opportunity to meet others from the trade. The festival opens the door to another world of animation, larger and wider than “cars” and “Shrek” while the town teems with paintings, cartoons, street art and other events.
