Kuandu International Animation Festival


Years running: 12 (since 2011)

Kuandu International Animation Festival

International Animation Film Festival.


The festival is a non-profit event with an aim to establish an international exchange platform for animation enthusiasts. In order to cultivate an international perspective, hundreds of outstanding international animation films are selected through contests to expand international cultural exchanges.

Like in previous occasions, this year the KDIAF will continue to hold the following activities: international master lectures, animation industry lectures, animation workshops, animation camps for children and creative art marketplaces. We hope the exchanges within the activities will provide fresh impetus to animation creation and the digital culture industry in Taiwan.
