From January 25th to February 3rd, 2018, some of the best and most fascinating animated films for adults from all over the world will be screened at two central venues in Copenhagen for this year’s VOID International Animation Film Festival. The printed programme was released and celebrated with a pre-premiere of the spectacular feature film Loving Vincent on January 6th. The festival itself will see more than 100 films screened, as well as two juried competition programmes (graduation films and music videos), an audience award, and five afternoons with industry events.

This year’s film program contains a wide range of titles with something on their minds and in their hearts. The opening film, The Breadwinner, is nominated for 10 categories at this year’s Annie Awards, and received a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Animated Feature. In the gloomier genre, VOID offers three very special animation classics in the form of Barefoot Gen, When the Wind Blows, and Akira – all tackling the consequences that follow in the footsteps of the ultimate weapon of destruction, the atomic bomb. The films represent one of the major strengths of animation; to show the worst, most difficult, but also the most beautiful human emotions in a way that is both personal and universal.

The VOID short film selection has been curated from 700 submitted films from 56 countries. There are subtle stories by solo artists, a two-hour programme of recent graduation films, experimental shorts by seasoned teams, and everything in between. Five selected films are by Danish directors: 1st day and next minute by Sara Koppel, No Ozone by Kim Kim, Nothing Happens by Uri and Michelle Kranot, Ragnarok by Johan Oettinger, and the music video to Danish popular artist Rasmus Seebach’s Andeby, by Josef Rasmussen & Dainius Vitkevicius.

VOID International Animation Film Festival 2018 will be held from January 25th to February 3rd,
2018, in Copenhagen

@themooks @skwigly I know it's kind of obvious, but I used to see it as 'important but secondary'. I don't see it as secondary any more.
