  • 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!

    A great festival with an excellent team. We were well looked after throughout the festival and made to feel very welcome. The quality of films being screened was excellent and made me very excited about the independent animation scene in South Korea and beyond.
