China and South Korea have signed an agreement to help each other promote and develop China's Changsha Cartoon Art Festival (CCAF) and the Seoul International Cartoon & Animation Festival (SICAF) into the largest animation festivals in China and South Korea, according to CHINA KNOWLEDGE PRESS.
The agreement was signed Nov. 10, 2005, at the fourth Changsha Cartoon Art Festival (CCAF) in Hunan province.
The secretary-general of China Television Artists Assoc., Wang Feng, said he thought that the South Korean animation industry will provide invaluable experience, especially in the areas of digital technology for Chinese animators.
Changsha is one of the pioneering bases for China's animation industry approved by the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT). The city produces 15,000 minutes of animated film a year that brings in RMB 1.3 billion worth of revenue.
