“And even after all the hot debates and business talk, when I sat down at the outdoor theatre under the stars to watch one of the screenings, I couldn’t help but feel like a little kid again, who after all these years is still mesmerised by the magic of animation.” – Read Mustapha Hendricks’ Review of the Cape Town Interntional Animation Festival 2017.
