EMBRACE THE CHAOS
IFCC was a great experience for me. It's a great place for people to network, hang out and meet everybody they've been inspired with through the years, and everybody gets to show their artwork and improve it.
David Luong, Blizzard Entertainment
Chaos inside chaos. But everything works, and everyone loves it.
Andre Lourenço, THU
I love IFCC. It's a very unpretencious event for artists, it has a very good vibe, a good community. We want to support this, we like the mood in the city, we like the mood between the atendees, and we think that it's something that's worthwhile.
Marko Djurdjevic, Sixmorevodka
IFCC is really special for the art community. A very intimate conference where everyone gathers together, where both speakers and atendees are all equal, and are all together. That's something that we really believe in and will continue to support.
Kenny Carvalho, Riot Games
My life has changed so much because of IFCC. When you come here and meet all these artists, you notice that everyone's just like you, everyone's trying to get better. And it motivates you to get better. It's amazing and I would recommend everyone to come here.
This is one of the best networking events I have ever been to. You get to meet people that you wanted to meet from around the world and share art. It's an experience that's hard to put a price on.
I love this place. You get to meet your heroes and talk to them in person.It changed the way I work, and changed the level of the artist I am. So come to IFCC and improve yourself.
Paul Liaw, The Mill
There's so many reasons to be at this festival, it's so awesome. A week of inspiration, meeting great artists, having a lot of fun with them and learning new things. When you walk away from here you're just so pumped up and ready to try a ton of new stuff.

COME, LEARN AND PASS ON KNOWLEDGE
IFCC 2018 will be all about learning, teaching and finding the best possible choice for your career. We're partnering up with some of the most amazing art schools on the planet, top creative studios, some of the most innovating young companies and thousands of professionals.
All this will be condensed and take place in your favorite city with a weird name, at locations you've come to know and love, at the festival where knowledge rules, but hanging out at the bar with a pad and pen is a close second.
Some festivals have the numbers. Others the recognition. IFCC is gathering more and more supporters every year and the speaker line-up is steadily getting insane. But what we pride ourselves on the most is the positive and inclusive atmosphere. We try to make the work fun and you guys repay us with smiles and good times.
IFCC lectures and demos are the cornerstones of the festival. It's how it all started and IFCC's main goal: to promote skill, empower the artist and spread the knowledge. Everybody involved is handpicked in accordance with their accomplishments, while keeping love and passion for the work at the forefront of the selection criteria. Patience, devotion, hard work and mischief are the recipes for success and we have some the best chefs to teach you how to run the kitchen.
IFCC loves to show and teach you new and exciting things. Even more so, we love to see and hear what you have to show us and other attendees. The Show-Off program allows the festival audience to bum rush the show and take over the IFCC big stage. It includes project and portfolio presentations, meeting recruiters and having your portfolio reviewed by bona fide industry pros. Get with the program and become the program. Present your projects to the IFCC crowd.

BUSINESS OF ART
Panels are like massive interviews. Group lectures that always provide unscripted insight about various topics. They are the perfect accompaniment to lectures and demos. It's not exactly news that IFCC takes much care and pride in presenting some of the industry's best minds, but it is worth repeating. The panels and talks often come with a bunch of ad lib so prepare to learn and live.
Learning is great, but catching some sun rays outside, while fellow artists are tearing it up in the urban outdoors is just healthy. Every IFCC Main Event comes with an outdoors activities program that frequently features street, graffiti and various genre artists who make the already trippy festival even more colorful and exciting.
