Amsterdam-based Tünde Vollenbroek lives and breathes animation. For the last 10 years she has been active in the field, currently as producer at and co-owner of animation house Studio Pupil. Vollenbroek is also a board member of the Emile European Animation Awards, curator at the KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival, and correspondent at the world’s top animation resource Cartoon Brew. Recently Vollenbroek was awarded the Business Award at the Animation Production Day, for innovative business strategies. She headed Dutch trade missions through the U.S. and Western Europe, and co-founded a group for female directors and producers in The Netherlands. She studied at the HKU Utrecht School of the Arts (2008-2012) and Animation Sans Frontières (2012-2013). The only thing greater than her love for animation is her love for great Italian ice cream.
