We’ve got the feeling that this will be one for the books – or for the screens. The second week November is all about animation. Running Saturday 9 – Sunday 17 November, Kaboom Animation Festival is opening pandora’s box of all things animated, in all shapes and sizes. Varying from cosmic identity-crises to animated erotica. It’s going to be colorful, it’s going to be explosive. As Kaboom put it themselves “Kaboom adores animation. We live it, we breathe it, we devour it like an unguarded bag of cookies.” To make sense of all of this, we decided to highlight 5 screenings that struck our eyes and minds.
And before we move on, we have a limited amount of free tickets for members, for selected screenings. To secure a spot, please shoot a mail to email@example.com with ‘Kaboom’ + the name of the screening you would like to attend in the subject line & your full name in the mail.

You’re invited to watch animated porn and erotica with them, and to chat about the good, the bad and the orgastic that present itself on screen. Saturday 16 November (21:30) in Ketelhuis 2.

There were no cameras in court when Nelson Mandela and nine other defendants were sentenced to life imprisonment in 1964, but sound recordings were made throughout the trial.
