Greetings from the Seoul International Cartoon & Animation Festival.

The fourth industrial revolution: artificial intelligence, robots, virtual and augmented reality, and et cetera — are altering our everyday lives. Experts are stating that imagination and reality are converging and becoming optimized around our human race. Thusly, there is an emphasis: not on technology, but our very lives.

The 22nd Seoul International Cartoon & Animation Festival (SICAF 2018) revolves around the theme ‘LIFE.’ Established in 1995, the festival is heading towards our twenty-second year; throughout the years, we have entrenched as a unique international festival where both cartoons and animated films could be appreciated. We anticipate that the upcoming festival will provide new, different opportunities to interact with cartoons and animated films from around the world.

SICAF 2018 hopes to stand in the center of technological developments and emerging ‘empathizable and fun’ contents. A chance to experience the unlimited imagination of cartoon and animation artists — SICAF 2018 is waiting for you.
