KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival is a yearly festival for short animation films in Amsterdam, in existence since 2007. In 2012 the festival was held in the EYE Film Institute Netherlands.

The festival includes two competitions for short animation films: the International Student Animation Competition for student films and the International Short Animation Competition for animations with a length of up to 25 minutes. Since 2009 there is also a Design Award and a Political Animation Award for the best animation with a political theme. Besides animation, the festival also gives attention to related art forms like comics and computer games.

KLIK! Amsterdam is organised by the KLIK! Foundation.

History[edit]

KLIK! Amsterdam originates from the Flemish KLIT! Multimedia Festival, that took place in 2004 and 2005, organised by students of the animation academy of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. Their purpose was to provide the general public with access to both their works and those of their fellow students working in other disciplines. In 2007 the KLIT! Amsterdam Animation Festival was organised for the first time. In 2008 the name 'KLIT!' was changed into 'KLIK!'.
