Late last year MIAF was lucky enough to have been invited to sit on the jury of Indie AniFest, a festival of exclusively Korean animation which runs in Seoul. This week long immersion in Korean animation was all the encouragement we needed to bring you this two program collection.
Working predominantly in drawn, puppets, 2D, 3D and flash, the real charm and uniqueness of much Korean animation is its unusual narrative structures – a kind of ‘logic-but-with-a-twist’ approach to delivering a story.
The incredible skill, the grasp of
the craft of making animated films and the attention to
detail are also unmissable hallmarks of Korean animation
– and of these two programs.
