FUTURE VISION FESTIVAL: A Celebration of Unusual Animation

Future Vision Festival is a festival that aims to connect Dutch and Japanese animation. In cooperation with art universities from Japan and the Netherlands, the festival will include simultaneous screenings, short films, interviews and performances in Amsterdam and Tokyo, as well as online screenings.
