In our 7th year, we received over 1,500 entries from 90 different countries, and curated three amazing programs featuring 21 award-winning animated films, some of which will be making their debut in Asia, and have came from international festivals including Ottawa, Zagreb Animafest, Bucheon and more!

Visit our unique artist market and discover hidden gems, and Kult Gallery’sThe Super Sucklord exhibition, while enjoying and trying out trippy animation that will be projected on Kult Kafe’s iconic colonial building by Mi5chief Makers! 

Grab a beer and a fistful of popcorn and catch award-winning animated films while meeting the actual creators themselves! Enjoy the first ever ‘Best Singapore Student Animation’ program, and two international programs titled ‘Different Worlds’ and ‘A Word Please’.

Both international categories will compete in Cartoons Underground’s 2nd Golden Durian Awards! They stand to win the title of ‘Best Animation’, ‘Audience Choice’ and ‘Special Mention’, while films from the local category will have the chance to compete for the title of ‘Best Singapore Student Animation’
