KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival announce Aneta Ozorek as new Artistic Director

// Business, Featured, News


KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival, the city’s leading industry event, has this week announced Polish-born curator, illustrator and industry expert Aneta Ozorek as their new Artistic Director.

With a strong background in animation initiatives and European events curation, Aneta serves as Polish Ambassador of the European Animation Award and Member of the European Children Film Association. Over the past fifteen years her roles have spanned Head of Shorts at Visegrad Animation Forum and programmer at Warsaw’s Cinema in Sneakers Film Festival as well as promoting 70 years of Polish animation at major festivals and conferences including Annecy, Cartoon Forum and MIPCOM.

Filling the shoes of former Artistic Director Yvonne van Ulden, Aneta Ozorek will join KLIK general director Bram Kranendonk in leading the way forward for KLIK.

Aneta’s strong international connections tie in with the international ambitions that KLIK has set itself: to strengthen KLIK’s international position in the animation landscape through international collaborations with other festivals and organisations and to promote what the Dutch animation industry has to offer all around the world.

-Bram Kranendonk, KLIK General Director

As new artistic director of KLIK, Ozorek intends to further establish KLIK as a festival that finds unique ways to connect art and business; and to intensify the international promotion of Dutch animation in Europe and beyond.

Everything started with chaos: friends, poetry, an experimental approach, brave program decisions, and a passion for the art of the moving image. KLIK was always connecting and inviting, never exclusive. Always collaborating, never competing. To set up an inspiring path into the future, we aim to further establish KLIK as platform that connects the greatest names in animation history with debutants and the biggest studios with independent artists. An innovative approach in connecting art and business will be a core element of the KLIK identity. We are witnessing a multitude of international partnerships that take animation to a global scale, rarely seen before. KLIK wants to contribute to this process by building a European and global strategy for the whole industry

-Aneta Ozorek, KLIK Artistic Director
