VAF is Denmarks largest animation festival and is held every year in week 39

For the 7th time The Animation Workshop is proud to present the largest animation festival in Denmark: Viborg Animation Festival (VAF).

From the 24.-30. of September 2018 more than 28.000 visitors from all over Denmark and Europe will pass by Viborg to celebrate all the possibilities, that animation gives to the world.

In 2018 France is the theme of VAF and the festival program is therefore deeply inspired by the French animation and its traditions.

And no festival without a festival trailer!

This year’s trailer is made by VAF artist of the year: Jessica Laurent. Jessica is a French director and visual storyteller. She graduated from The Animation Workshop in 2017, and she has a strong stylistic flair for pictures, which manifests within her sense for French finesse and refinement combined with the beautiful Nordic simplicity.

Jessica is French by birth but Danish by heart and in the trailer, she’s letting her love for the two countries melt together on screen.
