  • The Indie-Anifest Animation Festival was very well organised! The team prepared and assisted the filmmakers ahead for online video meetings with the audience after the screenings. The meetings themselves took place as scheduled, with a moderator and a translator. It was good to meet the other filmmakers online and see their films! Overall, the experience was great. I hope I will be able to able to take part in India-Anifest again!

    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.
