Remarks shared after Festival


“This trip was quite enriching. I get to
know animation industry in other countries. The range of topics covered by the
short films there is quite wide, from discussion on life, greediness, desire,
to humor, preaching, gaming etc.. [More]
“This trip was quite enriching. I get to
know animation industry in other countries. The range of topics covered by the
short films there is quite wide, from discussion on life, greediness, desire,
to humor, preaching, gaming etc. Productions are of big-scale, and you can see
the effort they have put on the small details.



I learned
a lot from the discussion between animation makers and I. It was really
eye-opening. In free time I visited numerous museums to understand the history
and culture there. I believe these experiences will be helpful on my upcoming
animation production.”

I am amazed by the animation technic, story and idea of the works. All the
works selected are from different countries. The difference in cultures usually
have obvious effects on the ideas of works and generated many out-of-the-box
stories. It was a very great chance to see different cultures from all around
the world in one festival. By visiting this festival, I learnt a lot of new
ideas and technics that I have never seen before. It helped me to better
understand how animation is going on in different countries and this has really
helped a lot on my future planning.”
