“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. It’s important for us to recognise and support young and talented local directors. Cartoons Underground is a perfect platform for that.” said Chris Shaw, Head of Animation at LASALLE College of the Arts
EVENT PRESS: "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.
