    This was indeed a great experience. The festival organizers are very warm and friendly, and I had the opportunity to interact with some of the prominent personalities in east asian animation. Also informal tours to some local animation studios were arranged which gave insights to some of the projects in development.

  • Thank you! It was a unique experience. Had a bit of a culture shock. I was really curious about Korean animation and for me it turned out creepy-cute and weird. I loved it!
