South Korean producer Hongjoo Ahn, the creator of The Nub Job franchise and a speaker at the festiva

l’s master class, reveals that he is currently working on two animated films with strong connections to China.

One is Mean Margaret, a China-US production based on the

novel of the same name by American writer Tor Seidler. The other is Songhua, an original sto

“We have been working closely with Chinese animation talents and studios for many years. We have seen an amazing pa

ce of growth in this industry. The cultural and technological advancements are leading us into a golden age where we c

an create content based on Chinese stories that we feel can play globally,” says Ahn.
