Thanks for the quick reply.
Sounds complicated, but I'll browse through the windows docs.
In my search for a solution I also bumped into vtksys::Encoding::ToNarrow(), however this gives me an 'unresolved external symbol' link error. I have never used stuff in vtksys (and similar libs like vtkpng, vtktiff) before, so I am not really sure I am supposed to, i.e., these are just functions used by cmake and/or in just the vtk build.

VTK just uses C++ streams in most of its readers/writers. On OS X,
you'll find that you can use utf-8 filenames just fine. Same for linux,
for the most part at least.
For Windows, you'd have to set the codepage to 65001 (utf-8). I've
done this successfully for console I/O (via SetConsoleOutputCP()),
but you'll have to look through the Windows docs to see what function
is needed to change the codepage used by CreateFileA.
