CICAF is the only state-level professional cartoon and animation festival in China, sponsored by the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of the People’s Republic of China, and Zhejiang Provincial People's Government. This annual event has been held in Hangzhou since 2005, the capital of Zhejiang Province, a scenic city famed for its legendary West Lake as the World Cultural Heritage.

In December 2004, Hangzhou stood out in the fierce competition with Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Changsha, Wuxi and other cities for its unique edges in economy, culture and geographical location to become the permanent host city for CICAF. This Festival was later listed as one of the 8 key cultural projects incorporated in the country’s 11th Five-Year Cultural Development Scheme.

CICAF has a main venue of 80,000 square meters, holding the professional activities like Industry Exposition, International Animation Transaction Fair, “Golden Monkey King” Award Competition, Core Forum, Hangzhou Summit, Master Class, Film Screening, “Cool Mind” Fair, and Cartoon Masterpiece Exhibition & Auction, etc.

The 10th CICAF 2014 attracted 1.36 million visitors, including 415 thousand person-times from the main venue-White Horse Lake Animation Plaza, 602 companies and institutions from 74 countries and regions to attend. It also saw the contract signing of nearly 285 projects, involving 13.86 billion RMB(USD 2.25 billion), the total of projects value, on-the-site transaction value and expo turnover.

With the theme of “Animate our city; Animate our lives”, CICAF has become a cartoon and animation festival with the largest scale, highest popularity and widest influence in China, and cut a figure in the international stage. With its 10-year experiences, CICAF would further enhance its brand influence and event quality, so as to develop into a communication platform with broader international visions and higher professional standards. Composed by exhibitions, forums, competitions and events, this carnival is looking forward to having all the guests to come here in Hangzhou and enjoying the wonderful cartoon and animation feast.

Welcome to Hangzhou, China!
