Remarks shared after Festival


SICAF is one the the biggest animation festival in Asia which categorizes animation and cartoon animation. Apart from the typical independent animation we see in animation festival, there are also cartoon animations series such as "Fist of the North Star", "King of Prism", "The Prince of Darkness", "The Garden of Words" and "Your Name". However, it made me ponder that is it independent animation or cartoon animation do animators truly want to do.. [More]

I really appreciate
that NAE gives
me this opportunity to promote my animation. I’m very honored to be invited by
NAE and get the support from Hongkong government. During

For competitions to film
market, from professional forums to
special screenings, the organization of the Clermont-Ferrand International
Short Film Festival is very mature. I believe that filmmakers such as directors
and producers, and audience members alike can gain much from this festival.





My animation
reflects hongkong people’s daily working life. I’ve used a very cute character
which is a pig to represent hard-working Hongkong people. The animation
reflects the philosophy of how to survive in such a fast paced society. I’m
glad to hear that through the NAE promotion, different festivals have shown
their interests in my animation.





The audience here in
Clermont was awesome, they were curious about the animations. I’ve attended an
animation screening and the theatre was full of teenager students. The usage of
short films is easy for educational purposes. In France, the short film plays
an important role in education on the basis of high school and university
students. Although I’ve attended other international festival, they can’t
compare with the influency of Clermont Ferrand international short film
festival.
