Cartoons Underground in partnership with Sideshow celebrates its 8th year with a new set of awards for the best animation from the region and the world.

Celebrating our 8th year, 19 works have been selected from 1,416 entries submitted from 80 different countries and will be competing for the Golden Durian Awards featuring Best animation, Audience Choice and Special Mention!

You can look forward to three programs, our very first Women in Focus program, an International program, and Best Student Films from Singapore!

Grab a beer and a fistful of popcorn and catch award-winning animated films by directors from Ottawa Animation Festival, Zagreb Animation Festival and Edinburgh international film festivals.

Join us for heart palpitating scenes and plots that will drive you to the edge of reality while hanging out with the creators themselves!

This community-driven festival was founded by Patrick Smith, Director of MTV Daria, and Vicky Chen in 2012, and has grown through crowd-funding and artists’ contributions. The festival has expanded to a community of 1000 members, not limited to the arts and animation community in Singapore.

Admission is by donation, so if you enjoy the films please help contribute to ensure the future of our artists and the festival!
