SAT 17 OCT / 6-MIDNIGHT / BY DONATION / MAP
Cartoons Underground is back!
Singapore’s first and largest independent animation festival is back for the fourth year!
In partnership with Sideshow, join us for heart palpitating scenes and plots that will drive you to the edge of reality while hanging out with the creators themselves!
Grab a beer and a fistful of popcorn and catch award-winning animated films by directors Gabriel Möhring, Jessica Poon, Nicholas Chia, Jossie Malis, Amanda Wong, Kong Yee Rou, Ronald Fong, Chen Xi and An Xu.
“Singaporean animators are creating world-class and groundbreaking films, (and) yet there are few outlets for their work to be seen by the local public,” said Chris Shaw, Head of Animation at LASALLE College of the Arts. “It’s important for us to recognise and support young and talented local directors. Cartoons Underground is a perfect platform for that.”
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.
This year’s official poster was done by Sean-Paul Adams, underground artist from New York.
Admission is by donation, so if you enjoy the films please help contribute to ensure the future of our artists and the festival!
Showtimes: 7:30PM & 9PM + personal Q&A with directors after.
No outside food and drinks please! Food and drinks available all night from Kult Kafe.
