Seoul Indie-AniFest (Seoul Independent Animation Festival) organized by KIAFA, the Korean Independent Animation Filmmakers' Association.
Indie-AniFest presents spectacular independent animated films from Korea and Asia.
The festival offers a diverse range of works and opportunities for filmmakers as well as a chance to interact with audiences.
We strive for the values of independence, experimentation, passion, and vision by working together with independent animation directors.

*The budget for the government's film festival support project has been reduced, so inevitably, we had to reduce the prize money this year

    Easily the best festival I have attended. The programme is extremely inspiring (more so than the top tier festivals). They took care of hospitality right from the airport. The parties allow for great networking. Took care of many details in the screenings too.

  • One of the best festival experiences I had. I was invited on 2022 and had an amazing time: the hospitality team is very dedicated and cared a lot to make my visit comfortable and pleasant. They also organized parties with food and drinks and many opportunities to network with other filmmakers. Highly recommended!
