Korean Cultural Centre India screening Korean short animation films online
Korean Cultural Centre India in cooperation with the Korea Independent Animation Association (KIAFA) has begun online screening of Korean short animation films.
The first film was screened today at 6.00pm – a film will be screened every evening till February 25 – through the Korean Cultural Center’s film screening website.
The event will feature seven of the latest works submitted in 2021 from the “Indie-AniFest” hosted by KIAFA. The KCCI has carefully picked works that have varied expressions and interesting storylines; ranging from traditional drawing works to works employing 3D computers.
Writer Kim Kang-min’s Dream uses a stop motion animation technique that gradually moves and shoots objects that are stationary. This work incorporates the author’s autobiographical story, expressed through a concise and powerful black-and-white image with a synopsis of love for children based on the mother’s precognitive dream. Who brings chocolate jam? (Jang Na-hee), the animation music video First Time (Lee Gyu-ri), Incomplete Woman (Heo Soo-young) with engaging characters leading profound stories, and The Master Piece (Kim Si-on, Lee Eun-jin, Lee Ji-young) are some of the films being screened.
Hwang Il-yong, the director of the Korean Cultural Centre, said, “Korean webtoons have recently gained a lot of international attention around the world. In addition to this situation, I believe that it is very important to introduce short animation works to India that are unique in terms of artistry.”
