About the Programme

M+ Cinema presents Animation Pioneers in Asia, a landmark programme that celebrates game-changing moments in the development of independent Asian animation from the 1960s to the 1990s. Featuring hand-drawn animations, as well as films using stop-motion, puppets, papercuts, sand, ink, and more, Animation Pioneers in Asia showcases the first feature animations ever created in Korea and Thailand, alongside a rich and striking assortment of short animations from Hong Kong, mainland China, and Japan. A celebration of creative world building and risk taking, Animation Pioneers in Asia presents a fascinating and exciting journey into the heady beginnings of independent and experimental animation in our region.
