Kaboom 2024

11 — 14 April 2024

Kaboom Animation Festival 2024 says: Welcome Home. In this year’s theme programme, we explore the theme of home in animation. In various programmes we offer a mix of visual gems exploring home as a space, and films about subjects related to home, like forced migration, being unrooted and future nomadism.

Home sweet home. Zoals het klokje thuis tikt, tikt het nergens. Home is where the heart is. There’s no place like home. What does home mean to you? Wat if it’s no longer a place, but an object, a person, a memory, a taste, a language, a smell or an image?

We invite audiences and artists to name, draw, design and inhabit elements that make them feel at home. We engage in conversation with visitors that have a variety of relations to feeling at home in the Netherlands. By exchanging stories, we want to make everyone feel at home and welcome each other.

Join us, and come and wonder at the enchanting world of animation!

The Kaboom 2024 poster is designed by Kaboom's beloved illustrator Leyla Ali. These are her thoughts behind the artistic inspiration of it:

“The illustration is heavily influenced by my family image. My uncle used to take photos of our family in 90s, and I can’t express how much I love these photos. Azerbaijani families are loud, expressive and all about long gatherings with enough food to feed a village. His old Zenith did a good job capturing the mood of those years. Messy, happy, barefoot running around in my grandpa’s garden. I remember that my mom always had colourful gorgeous sweaters (most of the photos are black and white, but I remember!). So that’s what I tried to show on the illustration and I combined it with the image of what my own family could look like in the future.”
