  • The world’s only Asian animation film festival
    Indie-AniFest, the only film festival in Korea specializing in independent animations, now aims to become the world’s only Asian animation film festival. A film festival created and managed with the participation of independent animation filmmakers from Korea, Indie-AniFest strives for the values of independence, experimentation, passion, and vision. As we expand the scope and importance of this festival through our core values and the participation of artists, we hope that Indie-AniFest will grow into a unique film festival in the world where Asian animations come together.
    An animation film festival that crosses borders and expands in diverse ways
    Our desire is to create a festival that brings us together and expands through animations. As a film festival that is becoming a focal point in Asia, we will create an expansive space that allows exchange between filmmakers and audiences, offers a means of communication between films and their viewers, and goes beyond the boundaries of genres such as animation, music, and film.
    A film festival that defines the issues of contemporary independent animation
    As a film festival that brings together contemporary independent animation filmmakers, their films and audiences, we hope to create a space where we can discuss and learn more about the issues related to animation through seminars and workshops that are held throughout the festival.

    Indie Ani Night
    We invite you to Indie Ani Night, an evening of celebration for independent animation filmmakers, friends, and fans! It is a festive gathering for the directors and audiences who have come together for this year's Indie-AniFest.

    What exists in the world behind the screen? This exhibition presents the original artwork, characters, and props used to make the animations shown at Indie-AniFest.

    The Ani of All
    What is the “The Ani of All ” project?
    It’s a project to support Indie-AniFest by drawing pictures.
    Participants complete a set of sketches which are turned into an animation for the festival.

    The Ani of All Studio
    How are animations created? Can I make an animation even if I have no special skills?
    Let’s make some animations of our own!
    The Ani of All project,which took place prior to Indie-AniFest, will be seen at the festival. 

    Animation Shop
    This place is for exhibiting creations by directors including DVDs and related commodities to audiences. The audience can have a chance to meet independent animations which you cannot easily find. The 6th limited edition of the Indie-AniFest 2016 awardees is also released. Get this chance to have a rare item at this flea market.

    Indie-AniFest 2018 opens space for vitalization and formation of critic culture and discourse. People who have a love of animation and think critically about it can participate in this program to learn how to write reviews and spread the word about independent animation.
