Yesterday marked the beginning of Animation Volda 2017. Countless hours of work has been invested in making a truly unique festival where friends and likeminded people can come together. Thank you to Nancy Denney-Phelps for an amazing opening lecture and a great start to the festival. After the opening lecture we had the first showing of the student program, and we’re definitely looking forward to seeing more student films!
Following the student program was the opening ceremony, filled with live music, children’s films, speeches and more. A surprise award for Gunnar Strøm was also handed out, for his continuous dedication and hard work.
To finish off the day DJ Southviolence put on a great show. We hope everyone had a great first day and are looking forward to the rest of the festival!
