Cartoons Underground 2012
The first edition of Cartoons Underground!
We were proud to present Singapores first ever underground animation festival in 2012. Looking back on this year, it was the beginning of many great things. Our festival has grown tremendously from these early days. We will always treasure the support for all our early backers. Most of all, we have eternal thanks to all the animators who submitted their films for this first edition!
At the time, animation was still very conservative in Singapore. Some of the works we received really broke new ground in terms of quality and subject matter.
Cartoons Underground 2012 was a landmark even in the Singapore arts scene.
